We began our pilgrimage in honour of St Margaret Clitherow and the martyrs of York at the Bar Convent, where St Margaret's hand is venerated.

We then processed through the streets of York, which were so familiar to our martyrs.

On the Ouse Bridge once stood the Toll booth, where Margaret Clitherow was crushed to death on 25th March 1586.

John & Margaret Clitherow and their children lived on the Shambles, where St Margaret's Shrine stands today.


We continued on towards the Oratory, for Mass and Benediction.
