Hertfordshire city remembers its Saint

Puppet-sized St Alban / gj photos

If you happened to be in St Albans on a Saturday morning nearest 22nd June you may be surprised to hear a Public Address (PA) informing you a pilgrimage is about to begin. A typical English High Street within minutes becomes the route for giant puppets. In between the puppets you will see more clergy than is on duty at the Vatican on a Saturday.

As they process through the town to the Cathedral the story is relayed through the PA how Alban disguised himself as the priest the Romans sought and for it, he was killed (this is the very short version).

I thought I would let the photos tell the tale.
