Norwich Cathedral

This page has not been updated since June 2014.

Christian (Protestant) pilgrim site

The Anglican cathedral of Norwich is seeking to develop a partnership with the Catholic Cathedral of St John the Baptist (also in Norwich) to encourage joint pilgrimages to the nearby Shrine of St Julian of Norwich and the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. The Walsingham shrine is about 30 miles from Norwich and receives an estimated 100,000 pilgrims every year.

The Presbytery, Norwich Cathedral
By working with Norfolk County Council's 'Norfolk Trails' initiative and in co-operation with academics and archaeologists from the University of East Anglia the aim is to map out and publicise a network of pilgrimage trails within the county. This will include longer range paths and pilgrimages developed with St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Suffolk (40 miles), the Diocese of Chelmsford in Essex (80 miles) and Westminster Abbey, London (115 miles).

The aim is to create an experience of value to religious and secular travellers alike, united by a common interest in walking, local history and tradition as well as appreciating the environment. The project is inspired by the experience of revived pilgrimage in Scandinavia, particularly Nidaros (Trondheim, Norway - a founding member of GPN) and St Birgitta (Vadstena, Sweden - a proposed new member of GPN).

The Christian Declaration on Nature - Assisi 1986
The original Christian Declaration on Nature was created in 1986, at a meeting held in Assisi by WWF-International. It stemmed from an idea by HRH the Prince Philip, at which five leaders of the five major world religions – Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism – were invited to come and discuss how their faiths could help save the natural world.
