The Old Way to Canterbury

100-200 miles, South East England

The Old Way – 250 miles – 3 weeks – Southampton to Canterbury/Whitstable. Secreted away, amidst the green ways and wooded hills of England’s southern counties is a lost pilgrimage route – The Old Way. This medieval pilgrimage, linking Southampton to Canterbury, was rediscovered by the BPT from Britain’s oldest road map – the Gough map, dated c. 1360. Its course passes through some of England’s most beautiful countryside, touching upon numerous holy places – some much beloved, some largely forgotten. Become a living part of the revival of British pilgrimage, by following the Old Way, today!
