Whitsun & the walks

The church procession

Whitsun, or Pentecost, is a religious celebration and marked by many churches with a procession around their Parish.

Denshaw is no exception and a march takes place on Whit Friday morning, normally leaving the church gates at 10am.

Led by the church banner the procession normally includes a Brass Band

as well as anyone else able and willing to participate. If unable to join the procession many enjoy the sight and sound of the bands as they march.

In recent years the Denshaw procession has been fortunate to be accompanied by an overseas band who take the time and effort to visit the UK for the Whit Friday experience.
