  • Excellent calm place to visit I love the atmosphere of here :)
  • Tranquil and calm
  • This is a National Shrine of Britain, dedicated to St Winifred, a sixth century Virgin and Martyr, who was betrayed by someone to whom she had given hospitality , who killed her. People have come here ever since a Mediaeval Shrine being erected here in the fifteenth century by the grandmother of Henry VIII. The Mediaeval Shrine survived intact, because of this royal connection. During the two centuries of the persecution of Catholics it was a stronghold for that Faith. The water is reputed to have healing qualities for people of faith. There is an inexpensive Pilgrims Hostel run by the Bridgettine Sisters and prayers are said at the shrine at 5pm every day. Bathing is usually in the summer only. There is a very beautiful Catholic Church above the shrine and both Novus Ordo and the Tridentine Rite is offered twice a month. There are large pilgrimages throughout the year, and masses of healing.
