VISIT: Chance to see war graves

editorial image

For a number of years, I have led groups on pilgrimage to Normandy and the Landing Beaches on the special anniversaries of D-Day

The visits were moving occasions but it was always busy and crowded.

Between October 12 and 16, I will be leading a coach party from the North of England to Normandy at a much quieter time of the year when it will be possible to pause and reflect. There will be time to visit a relative’s grave as well as to see the landing beaches.

We still have a few places left. If anyone would like more details, I can be contacted on 01368 866826, mobile 07710 270640 or by email at You can also write to me at The Stable, Kirkland Road, Skirwith, Penrith, Cumbria CA10 1RL.
