Hundreds of Worshippers remembered the crucifixion of Christ when they silently paraded through the town centre yesterday.
Led by the Salvation Army Band a 200 metre strong line marked Jesus' death in the traditional Churches Together Walk of Witness.
The silent procession walked to the sound of a single drum beat from Park Street to the High Street Methodist Church, stopping outside Wilkinson's and St Mary's for prayers and hymns.
Worshippers carrying wooden crosses came from all sections and churches in the town - most of who had attended services before the parade.
The Crucifixion of Jesus was said to have taken place on a Friday in the year of Good Friday in AD 33.
Postcards telling people about Good Friday were also handed out to remind people of the true meaning of Easter.
Worshippers finished with tea, coffee and hot cross buns at the Methodist Church hall in the High Street.
