East of the M60 World Exclusive: images of this year’s Whit Walks in Dukinfield and Stalybridge

Eight churches, four from Dukinfield and four from Stalybridge, upheld the traditional Procession of Witness on a cloudy Whit Sunday.

Yesterday’s Whit Walks wasn’t blessed with the good weather of last year with drizzle during Dukinfield’s walk. At odd with previous years, the Dukinfield procession started some 15 minutes earlier than its traditional 10.30am time.

By 2pm, the Stalybridge walks was blessed with better weather. There was a healthy turnout from the four churches present.

Here’s our pictorial look at the Dukinfield and Stalybridge Whit Walks.
