How timely: BBC report on secrets of British pilgrimage sites

Not quiet as freaky as mentioning that it’s unbelievable that Nelson Mandela is still alive, and the next day he dies, but check out the BBC article on British pilgrimages just when our Year 9 students are starting their homework project on… British pilgrimages!

There’s an interesting map where you can click on specific pilgrimages and see how they hide interesting histories. Then little videos show how in places like Lincoln there was a child’s murder and in Walsingham in Norfolk thousands of pilgrims still visit today.

Not sure I could manage St Oswald’s Way in one go; though maybe the D of E students in Year 9 might be able to do that?
