Walsingham Way - Ely to Walsingham

117 km / 73 miles

Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk
This is the first in a series of three pilgrimage walks all ending at Little Walsingham. Having a long fascination with Pilgrim routes, well-known walker John Merrill virtually found one on his doorstep and devised a route that would take him from Ely (Cambs) to Walsingham (Norfolk) via the Fens to Brandon, Swaffham, and Rougham and to the finish at the Slipper Chapel, Walsingham.
