Consider hopping the pond this weekend to be part of the Martyr's Walk beginning at Tower Hill and ending at Tyburn Convent in London.

As an Anglophile and student of recusant history, I'd enjoy something like that. I was moved to discover that two Anne Weddells - mother and daughter - had been imprisoned in York with St. Margaret Clitheroe for the crime of being Catholic. That's when I started using my middle name - Anne.

The picture above is of the famous "Shambles" in York - the medieval butcher's street where Margaret Clitheroe lived and offered such costly hospitality to priests in hiding and fellow Catholics.

I've posted a life of St. Margaret Clitheroe here.
