To self-guide a weekend micro-pilgrimage to the song Jerusalem, we recommend Alastair Sawdays’ website (slow travel and special places specialists), who detail a section of our route from Dunsfold to Haslemere, staying in the amazing Roundhurst Barns – an unforgettable night of wooded luxury at the foot of the Black Downs, where in the morning you can ascend to the Temple of the Winds to belt out Jerusalem with lusty courage.
OR: If you would prefer to make your Jerusalem pilgrimage with the BPT, among a band of exciting strangers, COME ALONG WITH US!
We are running two guided weekend pilgrimage events on 4th-5th AND 11th-12th March 2017. Tickets include full gentle guidance from Guy and Will, with sleep and breakfast in a Medieval Priory – plus songs, foraging, access to secret places, and optional luggage transfer. Tickets cost £175/£100 (concession). All proceeds to the British Pilgrimage Trust.
During this weekend on foot in nature, we will sing ‘Jerusalem’ in a whole range of different places – from Sussex’s highest hill, to ancient wayside churches and swashbuckling pubs. Our destination will be Chichester, in whose Guildhall William Blake, author of the song ‘Jerusalem’, was not hanged. We celebrate with song. We have special access pilgrim access to the Bishops Palace and Chapel, as well as the wonderful Cathedral.
