Pilgrim's progress

Walsingham, Norfolk. The village is famed for its religious shrines in honour of the Virgin Mary and as a major pilgrimage centre. It also contains the ruins of two medieval monastic houses. Fancy a souvenir for the parlour?

As soon as I saw the thumbnail I though Walsingham, having perused these things myself a few years ago. Frightful kitsch!
John Prior: I couldn't really comment, one has to hedge their bets smile
Some of them look to be life-sized, John. WOW.
John Prior: Yes, true devotion to carry one home smile
I ust admit having been to Walsingham some years ago I thought the churches and shrines of great interest but did find this sort of thing somehow not quite right.
John Prior: I know what you mean smile
Good grief and I thought garden gnomes were tacky grin
John Prior: Come on now Bill, get the neighbours talking smile
Are those golden ashtrays? smile
John Prior: Could be, but I'm sure that is not the intention, although smoking could hasten your audience with St Peter smile
that is some nice work there John
