Walsingham Slipper Chapel

Walsingham Slipper Chapel, the Slipper Chapel, or Shoe Chapel, where it was said pilgrims took off thier shoes and walked the last two miles to Walsingham barefoot. It is a charming fourteenth century building: the window tracery, pinnacles, niches, buttresses, all admirable. Of late years it has been purchased for the Benedictine Order and repaired, and is very well cared for. the wonderful brick Hall of East Barsham can be well seen from the road. It is of late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, built by Sir William Fermor; then it passed to the Calthorpes, and then to the Lestranges.
