I'm coming from Canada and wondering where is a good place to start - What walk in England would be good. This will be my 4th Camino, and have already walked from Ferrol ... though a different start would be interesting@C.C.
it might help if you said where in England. If you want to claim a Compostella for walking the Ingles from A Coruna then the Pilgrim Office rules require a documented 25km in England. As many are aware you can practicably clock that up getting through border control and out to your Gate at Gatwick but getting the relevant stamps can be tricky. As it stands any google-able 25km evidenced by at least two stamps will suffice. Try walking 25km from your home church via an identifiable stage point.
You must really like the Inglés. Even walking from Coruña to Santiago you will be walking a lot of the same path and entering from same direction .. not knocking it - I’ve walked from Ferrol and its a great entry to SdC.Suggestions for starting in England please. Want to start in Coruña in Spain as I’ve already walked from Ferrol
I do ... have walked the French twice and the Portuguese from Porto, but like the Ingles. An it fits my time well. Even having walked the French twice, both were so different...the people, the weather, the alberguesYou must really like the Inglés.

Canterbury to Ramsgate is another easy walk including some river bank paths - taking you past St Martin's (see #10 above) through Fordwich (smallest town in England but two decent pubs - the George and Dragon is the better one) and Stodmarsh - the Red Lion pub does fantastic food and has rooms plus the nearby St Mary's church is a delight. When you hit the sea at Pegwell Bay you'll be passing the point where Julius Caesar set up his first camp in England.1)
Consider any part of the Augustine Camino.
Of most interest would be from Canterbury Cathedral to the Abbey Church of Augustine, Ramsgate.
Review the offerings at:
One that piques my interest is for a number of reasons is The Abbesses' Way from Wenlock Priory to Shrewbury Abbey - 30 km or so.
For most of these you may need to ceate your own credential, or use that for your later arrival in Compostela.
I am sure others can assist with how to cope with that side.
Kia kaha (take care, be strong, get going)
Be aware that providing evidence such as stamps for one's credential is quite different to the Spanish routes. I walked from Rochester over seven days, and have 10 stamps. When I last walked the CF, I collected over 30 stamps from Sarria, about the same distance.
