Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.
A pilgrim group in the eastern counties are hoping to open or is it reopen, a route from the site of St James's Monestry Northampton to Portsmouth via Oxford , Reading and Winchester, then to link with the route from Winchester to Mont St Michael and onward to Santiago via the existing routes. This route has some historical claim as the town of Northampton was in medieval times, one of the most impotant Royal towns ( site of Thomas A Beckets trial ) and has Roman roads from there to Oxford and the medieval motorway of the Thames to Reading, site of St James's hand. We would be happy to share our research and invite any to join us as we walk this route in the last week of July and the first week of August 2010.
Peterborough Pilgrims to Santiago.
We have it in mind. I am trying to get information. I have sent an email to Alison and we'll
see what happens. There is also a possibility that we will walk a little beyond Reading to Marlow, as St Iagos hand is now there, Thence to the Monastry at Alton and Portsmouth.
