From the Tower to Arundel

Twenty nine pilgrims from Sussex and Surrey, led by Father Mark Elvins, set off from the Tower of London last Tuesday, to follow the route taken by the funeral procession of St Philip Howard who died in the Tower In 1595 after ten years imprisonment there, at the age of 38.

After visiting the cell in the Beauchamp Tower where St Philip was imprisoned, the pilgrims proceeded by river to Hampton Court and then had a six-day trek passing through Weybridge, Effingham, Cranliegh, Billinghurst and Amerbley.

The pilgrimage was completed with Mass in Arundel Cathedral on Sunday, after Veneration at the shrine of St Philip in the Cathedral. The youngest pilgrim was 74 years old, the oldest over 70.
