Lynn’s Red Mount Chapel was visited by Easter pilgrims on their way to north Norfolk on Wednesday.

The chapel , built in 1485, was originally a meeting place for pilgrims across Europe going to Walsingham.

The landmark stopped featuring on the pilgrimage route to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham several years ago due to dilapidation, but started reopening its doors five years ago extensive refurbishment of the chapel and the surrounding park. A 20-strong group from the Student Cross pilgrimage, walking from Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire carrying a wooden cross, arrived on Wednesday afternoon. MLNF16PM03223
