The Buckfast Millennium Pilgrimage 2019

Day 8: North Ferriby to Beverley

We head westwards out of North Ferriby then turn north and then east, thereby avoiding the urban outskirts of Hull. Instead, long distant paths the Yorkshire Wolds Way and the High Hutton Circuit take us through some villages, fields and woods. We arrive in Beverley in good time for Evensong, and go on from there to Saturday evening vigil mass in St John of Beverley RC church before arriving at our hall.
