Peregrinus should not be in any difficulty as to pilgrimages to Our Lady of Walsingham. It is only natural that the village of -Walsingham with its ruins and ancient well is the place which all desire to visit and see. But at present we have no Shrine there.
The old " Slipper Chapel " is a correct place for special invocation to Our Lady of Walsingham.
But Lynn, with its " Chapel of the Mount " still extant, was also a place of halt and prayer for pilgrims, and it is certainly assured that Pope Leo XIII authorised the statue of Our Lady of Walsingham, and Shrine at Lynn—that shrine being an actual replica of the Holy House of Loreto.
Therefore Lynn is a proper place of pilgrimage—and it is a place of memories of those Frs. Wrigglesworth and Fletcher, R.I.P., and other Ransomers, who first worked for the return of Our Lady of Walsingham to England.
Where possible all should visit the beautiful Shrine at Lynn, as also the Slipper Chapel, and Walsingham itself, and pray each time for the day when again a beautiful church may be at Walsingham itself and Our Lady once more rule Queen in her Dowry, this England.

Sue—So far as my own records are concerned, I find that the rescript of December 7, 1935, conceded only a Plenary Indulgence for all the Faithful who, having fulfilled the conditions of Confession and Communion, visit the Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary near Walsingham on the Feasts of the Annunciation and the Assumption, and who pray for the intention of the Holy Father; and a partial Indulgence of 500 days for those, who, having a contrite heart, make the visits and pray as above also.
