“Mary and Michael Pilgrimage”
Kay Caldwell and Anne Jones
7.30pm Tuesday 14th January 2020.
Red Lion, East Street, Chulmleigh, Devon, EX18 7DD
Kay Caldwell and Anne Jones, members of Devon Dowsers, will be sharing their photos and telling the inspiring story of their pilgrimage along the Michael and Mary Earth Energy Currents, from Carn Lês Boel in Cornwall to Hopton on Sea in Norfolk
Kay and her husband, Joe, moved from Glasgow to Devon in 2011 – ‘for a gap year’, as they told their friends. That gap year got longer and longer and they never returned to Scotland, choosing instead to settle first in Spreyton and then in North Tawton, close to Kay’s daughter and son-in-law who run an organic farm breeding geese and Devon Red Ruby cattle. Kay is in semi-retirement, working now as a free-lance editor after a career in social enterprise and voluntary sector funding.
Anne, though not a native of Devon, has lived here for nearly 30 years. She migrated here from London and loves Dartmoor and its richness of Neolithic sites. She enjoys walking, particularly long distance footpaths, and amongst her favourites is the SW Coastal path. When Kay suggested they walk the route of the Michael Mary line she was enthusiastic, having had read the Sun and Serpent, introduced to her by her husband and wanting to explore it further.
Their talk traces their journey along the Mary Michael Pilgrimage route, highlighting some of the more interesting features they found along the way, and describing the impact that the journey had on them. They say that audience participation is positively encouraged….and might even be necessary!
