Walsingham

Walsingham. Marian shrine, Norfolk. The earliest shrine, dedicated to the Holy House of Nazareth, was built by the lady of the manor, Richeldis de Faverches, traditionally to commemorate her vision of the Blessed Virgin (1061). Both shrine and adjacent Augustinian priory gained fame and wealth from pilgrims and their bequests, until destruction 1538–9. Interest in Walsingham began to revive in 1897. The present Anglican shrine, which includes an Orthodox chapel, contains a newly carved statue of Our Lady of Walsingham, while Roman catholic devotion utilizes the reconsecrated Slipper Chapel, which marked the last stage of Walsingham Way.
