An annual summer walk to a place, shrine or area exploring a particular theme or aspect of our faith and Christian heritage.
What we rediscover, year after year, is the amazing personal and community value of going on a pilgrimage as our medieval forebears did, where the journey, walking, laughing, sharing, praying, singing, etc. is as important as the destination. We stop at a pub for lunch and sleep on the floors of church, school or community halls. We try to walk on footpaths not roads. Our pilgrimages are open to all, so long as you are able to walk about 15 miles per day and sleep on a floor.
Every year we plan and undertake a different Pilgrimage and as such this year we are walking from Bangor to Holywell, via Anglesey, starting on 12th August till the 27th August 2017. See our website www.thepilgrims.org.uk
