Pilgrims follow St Philip

ABOUT 30 pilgrims are to set off next week to walk from the Tower of' London to Arundel in Sussex.

They aim to follow the route taken by the funeral procession of St Philip Howard, Earl of Arundel and Duke of Norfolk, from the Tower of London, where he died in 1595, to his home at Arundel Castle.

St Philip Howard is the patron saint of the diocese of Arundel and Brighton and the pilgrims are from all over Surrey and Sussex.

Led by Fr Mark Elvins of Hove, the pilgrimage will begin next Tuesday with a visit to the cell in the Beauchamp Tower of the Tower of London, where Philip Howard was imprisoned. They will then travel by river to Hampton Court.

In the course of a six-day trek through W'eybridge, Effingham, Cranlelgb, BIllingshurst and Aniberley the pilgrims will visit West Horsley Place, the manor braise where St Philip's widow lived and where she stopped on her journey from the Tower and had an iron coffin made for her husband's body.. Fr Elvins will celebrate Mass every day for the pilgrims and they will stop for prayers at intervals along the way. They will sleep in church and school halls.
