A HEPWORTH pensioner has just returned from a month-long spiritual journey to Armenia.
Brenda Wall, 67, who runs the Foster Place Retreat House, visited the remote country to bring back some of its religious culture to the retreats of Great Britain.
She travelled to monasteries and church buildings hidden in gorges or clinging precariously to high cliffs.
Her trip was funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
The landlocked, mountainous country was the first nation to formally adopt Christianity, doing so in 301.
Mrs Wall now plans to write a booklet about the country's Apostolic Church.
