The Old Way GPX files

These are our preliminary GPX route files for the Old Way pilgrimage to Canterbury. A GPX file allows pilgrims to follow the route without signposts, on a map that tells them where they are! It is magical modern tech. To use these GPX files, either click on them on your phone and then ‘open with’ your preferred navigation app (I like Memory Map and Galileo Pro). If you are downloading them to your computer, simply email them to your phone so they can be open on your preferred app. Don’t forget, you can use GPX files on your phone while in airplane mode, without signal, data or wi-fi. Just be sure your app has downloaded the maps offline before you begin!

Will is currently working on a guidebook and accommodation lists for Old Way, which will be ready for the launch of our 2019 Pioneer Year. In the meantime, if you want to walk a section of the Old Way, please do download one or all of these stages, take your staff and step onto the path. And don’t forget to send us feedback!

Please note – these stage divisions are not binding. Start and finish where you choose. We are still working out the best rhythm for this pilgrimage, and different pilgrims saunter at different paces – so customise the way to make it work for you.

Thanks!
