On the hottest day of the year 36 pilgrims set out from Cogenhoe to travel to Verulamium, as St Albans was called in Roman times. Most of us decided to tour the Abbey during our time in the city. The Abbey has a long history with parts being built from Norman to Victorian times.
Six young people took part in the ‘Make Your Mark’ activity organise by the Abbey. This was based on the Magna Carta exhibition due to open the following weekend.
After lunch in the walled garden beside the Abbey the young people saw a retelling of the St Alban’s story by Amphibulus, a market trader in Oysters and the Executioner! Everyone was given a badge and a certificate to remind them of their experience.
