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 Woolpit

The shrine today on the Pilgrimage is that at Woolpit near Bury St Edmunds. This is another example of a local place of devotion attached to a parish church that on occasion attracted interest from further afield.

I posted about it in Our Lady of Woolpit

Our Lady of Woolpit Pray for us
