River to Rock Pilgrimage 2000 (Note in 2009 we are going to have a special slightly different event.. actors wanted!!.. )

April 21st 2000: Christians in Settle, in the Yorkshire Dales, celebrate the year 2000 by making a special Good Friday pilgrimage through their town.

Members of the different denominations and some of the village churches join together for special events such as this.

We set off from the Swimming Pool Car Park and stop at Castle Rock for Bible readings

and then cross the bridge

At the Catholic Church we sing "As I survey.." and hear about the miracles of the leper and the centurion's servant

We walk past the newly refurbished St John's Methodist Church Hall

to St John's Methodist Church

At the newly refurbished Anglican Church we hear about the Transfiguration, and then continue..

To the market square.

Should we have the main dedication at the foot of Castleberg, or the summit? The majority vote for the foot of Castleberg.

You can see the arches of the Settle Carlisle Railway in the distance.

Primroses and garlic leaves grow beside the footpath as we climb to..

the summit

We hope you enjoyed accompanying us on the pilgrimage.
