The pilgrimage was the idea of the vicar of Filey, the Rev Nigel Chapman.
He said: “The Augustinian monks from the Priory in Bridlington founded a number of churches along the East Coast during the 12th Century. We wanted to celebrate this by creating a journey from Bridlington to Scarborough that takes in churches along the route.
“They will be open during the weekend for a variety of events including a concert, organ recitals, a flower festival and open-air services. We want to offer people a warm and inviting welcome along the way of the pilgrimage, which can be done on foot or car, bicycle or even public transport.”
Walkers are invited to sign up for the whole pilgrimage, a full day or half a day (each leg is limited to 30 people and pre registration is required).

Anyone attempting the walk separately from the led pilgrimage should check the tide times on day two to avoid being cut off by the tide.
