Pilgrimage (n.): A journey on foot to holy/wholesome/special places.
From two roots: ‘Per Ager’ (‘Through the field’) – and ‘Peregrinus’ (‘Stranger’).
Britain’s holy places are all connected by green lanes and public footpaths.
You can make pilgrimage anytime, along a Great Route or from your back door.
British pilgrimage is open to all, with or without religion. Bring your own beliefs.
