Pilgrimage Route Between Wareham And Shaftesbury Opens This Weekend

You can join a pilgrimage this week!

Two planned attempts to officially open the 30-mile Wareham to Shaftesbury St Edward’s Way have been postponed because of coronavirus and an additional waterlogging problem.

Now, Bishop Karen Gorham will lead walkers on the route that the murdered king’s coffin bearers took in the 10th century. Sara Jacson tells us more.

Sara says if you’d like to join the party on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of September, you should email
