About the event
Listen walk and watch as the amazing story of Devon's patron Saint and 'the greatest Englishman' unfolds. Revealed in eight beautiful and specially designed two metre high stained glass street-windows set around Boniface's home town, this gentle 1-hour guided walk with a storyteller and actors tells the stages of his life from his Saxon birth in Crediton in 680 AD, his education in Exeter, his teaching near Southampton and his inspiring life-mission in what is now Germany France and the Netherlands, where he was martyred in 754 AD
Each circular walk starts at 11am from St Lawrence Green, Crediton EX17 2BD (parking nearby at St Saviour's Way car park EX17 3JF) and finishes not far away in Crediton Town Square (parking on the square and in car park EX17 2AJ), where there are also coffee shops, a bistro and a pub.
