Moseley Old Hall, a Recusant house, where Charles II hid after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.

Boscobel House, where King Charles also sheltered, and hid in the famous ‘Royal Oak’.The village of Brewood, with its Pugin Catholic church, containing a medieval statue of our Lady, and an Anglican church, containing the tombs of two of the 18th century vicars apostolic of the Midland District.

Discovery Days will offer an opportunity to discover somewhere different and interesting, have a bite to eat, and enjoy the company of fellow priests.

We plan to visit two nearby places of interest, with a stop for lunch in between, and to offer a variety of locations throughout the year.

Judith Champ, from St Mary’s College, Oscott, will plan and lead the days.

There will be no organised transport or fixed departure points; details of the programme will be distributed in advance, and you are invited to make your own transport arrangements, perhaps sharing a car with other priests from your neighbourhood.
