I’m enjoying reading this book on places of Pilgrimage in the UK. Just out from the British Pilgrimage Trust. Loads fab photos and history on sites both well known and less so. Recommended,

Yes, I agree it is a really beautifully produced book, with great detail and excellent photos.
It weighs in at 1.44kg, so it is a book for the coffee table or fireside, rather than the rucksack or the back pocket. Ideal in these times.
Here is a link. (I have no connection with the book or BPT).

Looks like a beautiful book! It inspired me to do a quick Amazon search for something similar for the camino (an illustrated coffee-table type book) but couldn't find one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi that is a really interesting question. I am not aware of a similar book, but a little searching came up with this:

If anyone knows this book, could they give us a heads up? It is very expensive for the HB!
There are secondhand copies on abebooks, mainly from USA and more of the Spanish translation of the orignial.

He has a more recent book https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0711239002/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_taft_p1_i0
which is less specifically about the Camino(s).

Seeing this in my local bookshop made me break two ingrained habits, not buying new books for myself, and not making impulse purchases!

I agreed with Kazibar and timr: it's inspiring and also includes many lesser known and new pilgrimage routes. If only it were easier to find modest places for a single person to stay in the UK....

Despite its weight it is v user friendly. Good indexing, too (always a plus)

Absolutely agree @BarbaraW and it is a quite large hurdle!

Note this almost simultaneous message elsewhere
