  • Common Cause - Friday 11 June 1926 www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0002229/19260611/012/0006 THE WOMAN'S LEADER. -THE NORTH WALES PEACE PILGRIMAGE. -FROM A CORRESPONDENT. - The women peacemakers of North Wales have arrived at Chester after nearly 150 miles of pilgrimage completed in five days. There have been on the main route fifteen meetings and sixteen processions, besides many meetings on side routes. Everywhere they have been welcomed, everywhere there has been interest and enthusiasm, never once has there been a single hand raised against the resolution. To the first meeting at Penygroes in South Carnarvonshire on 27th May, came five streams of pilgrims . . . winding, with their many blue flags, down the hill sides, and over 2,000 persons were gathered in the little market square from villages far up in the hills. Through the villages the pilgrims in six cars and char-a-bancs went along the Carnarvon Road, and at one place after another they found crowds across the road which insisted on speakers getting out and addressing them from the steps of the local war memorial and once from the balcony of a house. In Carnarvon and Bangor bigger meetings were addressed, and at Bangor wreaths of laurels and League of Nations daffodils tied with ribbon of the pilgrimage blue of peace were laid at the North Wales Heroes Memorial and the Bangor City War Memorial by Miss Wynne Jones, of the Mothers' Union, and Mrs. E. O. Price, of the Women's Liberal Association. Welsh and English hymns of peace were sung at all the meetings and a beautiful prayer of peace was offered at Bangor by the Dean, and at other meetings by a local clergyman or minister. On 28th May the pilgrims moved along the coast, picking up a group at Aber and holding meetings of the same type at Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr, Conway, and Colwyn Bay, their number swelling to their maximum at Conway, when the 60 pilgrims from the Bangor direction were met by processions from Llandudno, Llandudno Junction, Talybont, Llanrwst, and Trefriw, and a wonderful meeting took place in the beautiful historic ruins of Conway Castle. Many times were photographs of the pilgrimage taken, and twice they were filmed, as their long processions passed through town and villages.
