OUNDLE PILGRIMAGE – 2018
In Honour Of Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall
You can help Robin Moore raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their fundraising page – https://www.justgiving.com/Robin-Mooresoundlepilgrimage?utm_source=Sharethis&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=Robin-Mooresoundlepilgrimage&utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_term=Z8jjwG985.
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Sue Ryder and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
Thank you for your support!
The full pilgrim route runs through the Nene for 45 miles, covering a circle of the region (done over a period of 2-3 days). Details of this route can be found at the website: http://www.oundlepilgrimage.org.uk
The Sue Ryder Trail which is between 18-23 miles is our fundraising route for this year’s pilgrimage though there are cycle routes and smaller 5-6 mile walks available to accommodate family groups. These can also be found at the website or in our guides available at Oundle Volunteer Action Centre.
This year’s pilgrimage takes place on Farmers Market Saturday August 11th at St Peter Church from 8.30am. Although you can undertake the pilgrimage at any time of year by registering at the Council Offices – Oundle Volunteer Action (see Liz), Fletton House, the August weekend is dedicated to charity when we will be fundraising for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall and other local charities.
PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY
Most of the Pilgrimage is easy to follow if you stick to the guide which indicates adopted trails such as The Nene Way. You will also be directed by tape markers, painted yellow arrows or scallop shells which are consistent with the Camino de St James – the pilgrim’s route to Santiago. However the Oundle Pilgrimage is largely made up of public footpaths, bridleways and byways (denoted by a yellow band of tape) all of which traverse farmland. Please be do not damage any maps or signs that show public rights of way: avoid trespassing on private land and do not obstruct any right of way. Inevitably part of the route will follow country roads so please be very careful – especially in harvest season.
