I spent today at the Bradwell Pilgrimage. I found myself wondering how long it would have taken Cedd to travel from Lindisfarne to Bradwell in 653AD. He sailed down the east coast. A journey which would not have been easy or comfortable - no luxury yachts then. I expect that Cedd's journey took less time than mine; it was the 28th April that I left Linisfarne. Admittedly my route hasn't been quite so direct; I've been via Aberdeen, Exeter, Suffolk, the Holy Land and Liverpool amongst others, not to mention a few visits back to Gidea Park!
