Exhibition documents 800km pilgrimage walked together by mother and sons

Images from a 'life-affirming' trek along a famous Spanish pilgrimage undertaken by a mother and her two sons can be viewed by the public in a photographic exhibition in Maidenhead Town Hall.

Melanie Gow, who lives in Windsor, her 16-year-old son Ben and 12-year-old son Harry embarked on the 800km Camino De Santiago pilgrimage at the end of July.

A collection Melanie's photographs from the pilgrimage are now on display at the venue in St Ives Road until Tuesday, October 29.

She had entitled exhibition the exhibition 'Walking with Angels'.

The decision to take the 33-day long trip was made by Ben and Harry after becoming 'mesmerized' by movie The Way, a story about an American who takes the trail.

Melanie, who works delivering cultural initiatives, said: "Our Camino was perfect, it was extraordinarily hard but every day we experienced real joy, incredible coincidences, laughter and miracles."

Tonight at 7pm Melanie will give a free talk at the town hall. She is asking each visitor to donate one tin of food for the charity Open Kitchen.
