The Peter Sibley Collection

View Attachment: The_Peter_Sibley_Collection.pdf

The National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham has received a most remarkable gift, from the estate of the late Peter Sibley.

Peter Sibley had a great devotion to Our Blessed Lady collecting over a long period of time, a diverse collection of Marian related books, statues, postage stamps, postcards, coins and relic crosses from the Byzantium period, and a collection of the rarest medieval pilgrimage badges and artefacts which includes pilgrim badges relating to Walsingham’s pre-reformation pilgrimages.

A selection of the collection will be on permanent exhibition at the new Dowry Retreat House, High Street, Walsingham. If you would like to see some of the items please call in at the Dowry Retreat House.
