Telegraph's Top five pilgrim routes in Britain

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/countr ... itain.html

1 St Cuthbert’s Way follows in the steps of the Anglo-Saxon saint, stretching from Melrose Abbey in the Scottish borders to Lindisfarne in Northumberland. The 62-mile route is waymarked with a distinctive cross symbol (http://www.stcuthbertsway.fsnet.co.uk). The Northern Cross-organised pilgrimage takes place each Easter. One of the legs follows St Cuthbert’s Way (http://www.northerncross.co.uk).

2 The Saints’ Way stretches from Padstow (starting at St Petroc’s church) to Fowey. The stunning 30-mile walk is well signed with Celtic cross markers. Cornwall Country Council (http://www.cornwall.gov.uk) provides a route guide. The website also gives details on St Michael’s Way, another Cornish pilgrim route that makes for great walking.

3 On the first Saturday in July around 1,500 pilgrims walk through the fields from Bradwell in Essex to the isolated Saxon chapel of St Peter’s. This is pilgrimage “lite” with a picnic, music, dance, stalls and refreshments. http://www.bradwellchapel.org

4 St Winefride’s Well in Flintshire is Wales’s answer to Lourdes, a shrine to St Winefride (whose head was chopped off by a would-be rapist but miraculously reattached itself through prayer). Pilgrims can bathe in the outdoor stone bath. http://www.saintwinefrideswell.com

5 Canterbury remains an important centre of pilgrimage. http://www.canterbury-cathedral.org. Diehard walkers can attempt the Pilgrim’s Way, the 120-mile track that runs to Winchester, much of it parallel to the North Downs Way (http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/northdowns).
