Join us for a morning Pilgrimage Walk following the old monks’ path from Tintern Abbey to their grange farm at Penterry, followed by an afternoon Poetry Workshop in Tintern.
This is a free walking poetry workshop along Tintern’s Marian Way (tracing the old mediaeval Pilgrimage route to and from the Marian shrine in Tintern Abbey) with award-winning poet Fiona Benson. The walk will start at the bottom of the path of Sorrows ( the Stony Way) at 10, returning via the path of Joys (past St, Mary’s Church) to the Abbey with a rest and refreshment stop at Penterry Church. Approximately 3 hours. Places limited to 20. Please wear appropriate clothing – sturdy walking shoes are vital as this is a walk over rough ground of medium difficulty.
The workshop will be followed up in the afternoon with a poetry clinic with Fiona in the Abbey environs ( weather permitting) in small groups (4 max) per half hour from 14.00 to 16.00.
