Sheringham’s Good Friday walk of witness

Hundreds of Christians joined in the Good Friday Walk of Witness procession to Beeston Hill near Sheringham where the cross was erected in top of the hill.

This has been an annual event in Sheringham for almost 30 years.

The crowd stopped off at the clock tower in the town centre for a couple of songs and a prayer before setting off on the climb up to the 63-metre hill, with superb views over the town and surrounding coastline.

The cross will stay at the top of the hill over the Easter period.
