The weather forecast was right. It was hot today. We had eleven pilgrims set off today plus one dog. The visibility was very good and so as we walked along to Lealholme there was plenty to see.
Lunch in Lealholme found us sitting thankfully under spreading coper beech trees with the church behind us. Then after lunch we found an unusual farm on route with the world champion Birmingham Rotating pigeons along with two families of kittens and unusual breeds of fowls.
Beggars Bridge found us sitting thankfully and drinking water in preparation for a walk along the ancient trods through the woodland.
Stepping stones over the Esk got us very near to St Hedda’s where we were able to view the Nicholas Postgate window and hear some of the fascinating history of the church in Egton Bridge from Fr Roger. Our hymn for today ”Father hear the prayer we offer, not for ease that prayer shall be’ seemed apt. Nancy
