In Kentish Pilgrim Land …

We now have a name for our exhibition ‘In Kentish Pilgrim Land’, never the first answer on our ‘to do’ list. This has come about through meeting new sight impaired friends, Brian’s sharing of the hymn ‘who would true valour see’, Chris’s singing of the hymn, BB’s desire to cast feet and the whole groups wide and varied research throughout our project. The title ‘In Kentish Pilgrim Land’ was suggested by Rob Flood and comes from the title of a book written by Rochester born Victorian archeologist William Coles Finch.

We know that Rochester Cathedral has been a place of pilgrimage since the 13th century and have asked if we can display one of the large graffiti boards close to the Pilgrim Steps, for all to view as they journey about the Cathedral. BB intends to cast as many feet as possible to represent the footsteps of those who have gone before her. This is not such an easy task, to work with a transparent sticky material and especially when the user has Macular Degeneration. However, if anyone can, then BB can!

The transparent feet casts will complement our plaster of paris finger casts, a must for all our endeavours.
