Bishop blesses Timmy Mallett’s Camino Way pilgrimage

TELEVISION presenter turned artist Timmy Mallett has received a special blessing from the Bishop of Oxford, the Rt Revd Steven Croft for his forthcoming pilgrimage.

Timmy, who lives in the Cookhams, in Berkshire, is set to get on his bike next month to pedal the 2,000km (1,500 mile) Camino Way to Santiago de Compostela. This week he donned his cycling gear and along with his wife Linda, and some friends, travelled to Oxford’s Christ Church Cathedral. There Bishop Steven blessed Timmy in the Tom Quad, which forms the entrance to the cathedral. Photos by Jo Duckles and Eleanor Sangor.
