Walsingham, in north Norfolk, England (United Kingdom) has been a place of pilgrimage since medieval times, when travel to Rome and Compostella was virtually impossible. The original Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, founded in 1061, was destroyed at the Reformation.

In 1934, the English Bishops named the Slipper Chapel the Roman Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady.

Ave Maria!
