Whit Walk 2019 – Sunday 9th June 2019

Whit Walk from bygone years
Route for the 2019 Whit Walk

On Sunday 9th June we will be holding our annual Whit Walk. The procession will leave the Smith Hill end of St James Street promptly at 10am.

As always we will be accompanied by Middleton Brass Band.

Our fiends from Moorhouse Methodist Church will join us as we walk around the parish eventually ending up in Milnrow Memorial Park. Here there will be a short service and music performed by young people.

Everyone is welcome to join in this amazing tradition that goes back hundreds of years. Can you imagine what it was like to carry the banner in those days? The banner is still the original banner, but these days its at least 3 foot shorter … easy!
