Holywell – largest ever Order pilgrimage to historic site
Holywell, 31 July 2016
The Holywell site
The Order of Malta’s annual pilgrimage to this, the most visited historic shrine in Britain, saw a devoted gathering meet for the last July weekend to pay their respects and pray at the site. The pilgrimage was noted for the presence of so many different age groups joining together for the ceremonies and prayers at St Winefride’s Well and at the tiny parish church at Bala.
