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 Aylesford

The third of the Kentish shrines on this stage of the Pilgrimage is that at the Carmelite friary at Aylesford - now happily restored to the White Friars. 

My article about this from last year can be viewed at Our Lady of Aylesford

Our Lady of Aylesford pray for us
