Key Info

  • Duration: 02:58
  • Legend tells that in 1066 the first lady of Walsingham had a vision of the Virgin Mary who told her to build a replica of the house where she and Joseph brought up Jesus. The village became known as England's Nazareth, and people still go on pilgrimage to this house today. There is a service called sprinkling that takes place in Walsingham where people go to drink the water from an ancient well, believed to have healing properties. A pilgrimage is a journey you take where by the end of it you hope to feel better about yourself and the world in general.
