The Paulinus Way

50-100 miles, North England

Paulinus Way – 65 miles – 7 days – Todmorden to York. Paulinus began as a humble monk in Rome. Becoming one of the members of Augustine’s mission to Britain in 601, Paulinus was ordained a bishop and sent north, becoming the first Bishop of York, and later a saint. Saint Paulinus is now a symbol of hope and fortitude for many, and this route commemorates his life and deeds. Explore the unspoilt landscape of old Northumbria, visiting the sanctuaries at Mytholmroyd, Dewsbury, Wakefield, and Tadcaster, before ending in York itself. Become a pilgrim in Paulinus’ mold, and let the gorgeous views and holy places scattered across the North refresh your life and restore your spirit.
