Wulsfstan is the most celebrated of all Hawkesbury’s incumbents, being vicar of Hawkesbury prior to becoming Bishop of Worcester in 1062. He was canonised by the Pope after his death in 1095 and is now recognised as the Patron Saint of both Vegetarians and the Anti-Slavery Movement, both causes which had significant impact on his life. The following pages detail some of the legends as well as the facts about his remarkable life.
