Walkers' message delivered at Menwith Hill

Statement from Northern Friends Peace Board Walk of Witness
at Menwith Hill, CAAB Independence From America Day, 4th July 2013

We are a group of Quakers from the Northern Friends Peace Board, an organisation dedicated to the ‘active promotion of peace in all its height and breadth.’ This year we are celebrating our centenary.

Over the past five days we have walked the 35 miles from Richmond Castle to Menwith Hill, linking two significant sites of peace witness which span our hundred years.
