Shropshire Day: Feast of St Milburga

23 February 2024 all-day

Shropshire Day takes place annually on 23 February, the feast of St Milburga.

Milburga (d.715) was a Mercian princess and the abbess of Wenlock Priory.

In the eleventh century, her reputation as a miracle worker turned Much Wenlock into a place of pilgrimage.

Visitors flocked to St Milburga’s Well seeking cures for their ailments.
