Imprinted in spirals; whorls, cup and ring markings; Bridie’s (St Brigid’s) connection with Liverpool is made clear.
Brigid’s imprint can also be found in footprints marked on the ancient Calderstones; stones believed to come from a passage grave, like New Grange in Ireland.

Taking in Hope Street, walk with Judy Mazonowicz, long-time St Brigid champion and author of The Transformations of Brigid. Judy will discuss the different aspects of Bridie -also known as St Brigid and St Bridgitte- on a route bridging time and faith.
As has become tradition on Imbolc, the cross-quarter Pagan festival, you will join others at Bridie’s Well in St James’s Gardens at 1pm. Here, you’ll share poetry, songs, and contributions that celebrate the first stirrings of spring.
This is a significant year in the recognisition of St Brigid, as Ireland celebrates its first public holiday in her honour.
People wishing to join the walk should book here. Those who wish to meet at the well should join at 1pm.
Walk bookers will receive confirmation of the start point closer to the time of the walk. It will be on -or near- Hope Street. We advise you to
- wear weather appropriate clothing
- bring sunscreen/umbrellas (as conditions dictate), and
- suggest bringing water to drink as needed
- you are also invited to bring a canister to take water from the well.
The walk is funded by Arts Council England.
