The Buckfast Millennium Pilgrimage 2019

Day 12: Bridlington to Sherburn

The longest day. Most of the day is along minor roads again, but after lunch it is the road-walking stretches that are the highights as we walk along the bottom of a valley with a steep hillside to our right and then after prayers at Fordon we climb to the top of the Wolds with wide open views. If you feel you can't do the whole day, we suggest that you miss out the morning, and catch the Wednesday lunchtime bus from Bridlington to Burton Fleming (the only bus all week is ideally timed for us!). We are split between 2 halls tonight and each has its advantages: some pilgrims will be sleeping in the Methodist church is where we will eat and others in the Sports Club which has showers.
