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 on the Bridge at Wakefield

I realised earlier that I was slightly out of sync with the dates from the previous years so today I am continuing to post to get back on track. Tjis post and the next take me back not just to Yorkshire but to my home area. The first of these is to Our Lady on the Bridge at Wakefield

Our Lady on the Bridge at Wakefield Pray for us
