Pilgrims on the Student Cross pilgrimage arrived in King's Lynn heading their way to Walsingham.
The pilgrimage sees hundreds of people travelling over seven days from as far as Nottingham to Walsingham Abbey. The 10 groups travel almost 800 miles between them carrying a cross to mark the true meaning of Easter.
The Midlands group arrived in King's Lynn after making their journey through Wisbech on Wednesday, April 12, and are visiting the Red Mount Chapel in The Walks.
One of the pilgrims, Alice Brien, 24, from Huntington, has made the journey every year since she was a child.
She said: 'I could not imagine my life without Student Cross, I think it is a humbling experience and you meet so many people who are willing to help you. I have made friends for life, you can't not come back.'
