Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Marian Pilgrimage - Our Lady of Allingtree

Another little remembered shrine is the wayside chapel Out Lady of Allingtree which today is recalled by a modern church near its site on the western outskirts of Hereford. This is by one of the roads running west from Hereford towards Wales and the Marches, and not a few Marian shrines in the Principality.

I wrote about it last year in Our Lady of Allingtree

Our Lady of Allingtree Pray for us
