Story

I'm raising money to go towards the restoration of St Andrew's Church roof - the lead having been stolen a few years ago. St Andrew’s needs to raise £150,000.00 just to restore the roof - these repairs are very urgent!

On Tuesday 22nd September I started walking from Colchester, Essex to Holme, Norfolk. It was a very long way and at times I had some awful weather to contend with. I finally arrived at Holme, Norfolk on 29th September. I was endeavouring to trace the ancient Roman route from Colchester and join the known Peddars Way in Suffolk. Although I have completed this walk, this JustGiving page will stay open for a few more months.

From an early age I’d been keen to follow up a story handed down through some four generations of my family, that Peddars Way went all the way from the Norfolk coast to Colchester. Having been born and raised in a West Norfolk village where Peddars Way runs, this family story really resonated with me.

At long last I had a very good reason for trying to solve this mystery. When I left Colchester I tried to follow a possible Roman route joining the known Peddars Way. Whilst walking, I hoped to raise money to help replace the roof of St Andrew’s Church, Lt Massingham, because three or so years ago this Grade 1 Listed church had all the lead stolen from it. This was devastating news for the parishioners and as Patron of that church I really wanted to help a small community raise the £150,000 needed to complete the refurbishment. The church is in one of the villages where Peddars Way passes through.

My starting target is low, but I'd love to raise much more. Can you help?

    Yesterday afternoon Rina Adams and I finished our walk, Colchester to Holme Next the Sea. It was the end of our eight day trek through north Essex, the counties of Suffolk and Norfolk. I’d been suffering with very bad blisters from day two... but we made it! We left Colchester on a very hot day, but by Friday 25th September the weather changed and we battled high winds and rain. I’d like to thank all those who have been really kind and donated. This donation page will be open for several more months, Little Massingham Church needs your help.

    I'm very excited to to be able to announce that I'm planning to start my Peddars Way walk on Tuesday 22nd September. On that Tuesday I will be leaving Balkerne Gate, Colchester at 10.30 am! Over the next few weeks I will be adding more news and hopefully the Covid-19 rules will only change for the better. If you can help by donating that would be wonderful. I've been walking all through the lockdown and if you would like to read my blog journey, here is the link. peddarswaycharitywalk.blogspot.com
