Diocesan Borders Pilgrimage
This will be our third Diocesan Borders Pilgrimage and it will be led by Revd Maurice Houston, Rector of Holy Trinity Melrose.
We begin with coffee at 10.00 at the Corn Exchange at the centre of Melrose then make our way to Melrose Abbey for opening prayers at 10.30am, returning to Melrose Abbey for closing prayers at 2.30pm. There will be a break for a joint picnic lunch at the Thomas the Rhymer Stone.
There are two walks, both along a muddy path at the beginning:
An easy one of about 5miles mainly on the flat, going through Newstead, passing the Thomas the Rhymer Stone and doubling back into Melrose.
A slightly steeper one of 6-7 miles that heads up the hill at the Rhymer Stone at a gradient of 200, following the curve of the lower Eildon Hills, then leading back into Melrose.
If you would like to take part in the pilgrimage, please let the diocesan office know by phoning 0131 538 7033 or 07768491799
Do bring stout boots, warm clothes, waterproofs and a picnic lunch.
Maps will be available at the start.
