May 2nd - Our Lady of Fernyhalgh

Pilgrims have visited the Shrine of Our Lady of Fernyhalgh  (Ladyewell), Preston, Lancashire, for over 700 years. It is also now known as a Shrine of the English Martyrs who died for their RC faith in penal times.

Only four miles from Preston itself, Our Lady's shrine and well, based at Ladyewell House and very close to the RC Church of St Mary, is a quiet and tranquil place, visited regularly by Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Anglican pilgrims alike.
