Celebrations to mark the 800th anniversary of St Robert

In his time, St Robert was known across Europe for his wisdom and his acts of service. Pilgrims travelled from far and wide, and yet he kept a very special place in his life for the people of Knaresborough. On 24 September, it will be 800 years since his death and a number of events have been designed to reawaken an appreciation of who St Robert was and what he stood for.
