The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

by Rachel Joyce

Follow in the poignant footsteps of Harold, a humble ordinary elderly man, who on impulse sets out on an extraordinary walking pilgrimage from Devon to Berwick-upon-Tweed. As you trek through his metaphorical journey of missed opportunities, mistakes, and regrets; you reflect on your own life choices and the impact you may have had on other people.


In the city, Harold’s thoughts had stopped. Now that he was back on the open land, he was once again between places, and pictures ran freely through his mind. In walking, he unleashed the past that he had spent twenty years seeking to avoid, and now it chattered and played through his head with a wild energy that was its own. He no longer saw distance in terms of miles. He measured it with his remembering.
