St Amphibalus Way
Join us for a walking pilgrimage tracing St Amphibalus’ journey from his resting place to the shrine built in his honour in St Albans Cathedral.
We start at St Mary’s, Redbourn, where we will celebrate the Eucharist, have coffee, and listen to a short talk about St Amphibalus. We will then walk 5½ miles to St Albans, stopping for a packed lunch on the way. At St Albans there will be a chance to visit the shrine of St Amphibalus (and the shrine of St Alban) before attending Evensong at 4pm. Pilgrims will then make their way back to Redbourn by bus.
Cost: £7 adults, free for children. Includes refreshments at St Mary’s, Redbourn
Transport: Car to and from Redbourn (40 minutes from Winchmore Hill). When booking please indicate if you need or can provide a lift. A regular bus service will bring us back to Redbourn from St Albans after Evensong (not included in price).
Terrain: This is a gentle 5½ walk, following level footpaths, tracks and pavements
Lunch: Bring your own packed lunch, which we will eat in the grounds of Redbournbury Mill
Children: Children are very welcome on this pilgrimage.
Dogs: Dogs are welcome at St Mary’s, Redbourn, and on the walking parts of this pilgrimage. St Albans Cathedral may only permit guide and assistance dogs.
WCs: There are WCs at St Mary’s Redbourn, Redbournbury Mill, Verulamium Car Park, and St Albans Cathedral.
Non-walkers: Those wishing to join the Eucharist and talk at Redbourn and Evensong at St Albans, but without walking between, are welcome to do so. Please book using firstname.lastname@example.org. The charge of £7 applies to non-walkers as well as walkers.
Those with space in their car might be willing to give walkers a lift back to Redbourn to save waiting for the bus!
