Small Pilgrimage Places is a growing network of small and little known places of pilgrimage in the UK where one or two people won't get lost in the crowd. Many of them are wonderful centuries old chapels or cells that offer short term hospitality - a few hours, a day, 24 hours for prayer, meditation, or conversation.

Among them are the oldest Franciscan building in the UK and the church of Little Gidding - the site of Nicholas Ferrar's Anglican religious community that inspired the fourth quartet of Elliott's famous poem, Four Quartets:

"You are here to kneel
Where prayer has been valid"

You can stay at the Nicholas Ferrar House nearby. Be sure and visit the Little Gidding church website as well for lots of pictures and information about the famous quasi-monastic lay community that Ferrar founded which harbored (briefly) a refugee King Charles I. The Church still has no electricity and you can attend quarterly evensong by candlelight there in December.



December 4th is the Anglican feast of Nicholas Ferrar.

"Quick now, here, now, always -
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one."

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
