Interfaith Peace Pilgrimage 2017

The 2017 Interfaith Peace Pilgrimage took place on Saturday 21 October. Organised by the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle in association with the Crookham Peace Centre, participants enjoyed a walk from Crookham United Reformed Church to Flodden Memorial. Stopping for prayer and reflection at Mardon Farm, Branxton Hill and the Flodden Memorial (where approximately 14,000 died in the battle of 1513), the pilgrims turned their ‘hearts to the words of prayers from the families of faith around the world’, to the sound of a lament played on the Border Pipes.
