The Celtic Way

200+ miles, South West England, Wales

The Celtic Way – 758 miles – 3 months – Strumble Head, Pembrokeshire to St Michael’s Mount, Cornwall. Long ago, Neolithic peoples gathered blue stone from the Preseli Mountains in Wales, and brought them over hill and vale to Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain. Centuries later, the peoples of Wales and “West Wales” – that is, Devon and Cornwall – were united by a common Christian faith and a common language, quite apart from the pagan English. Ranging almost 800 miles from North Wales to the tip of Cornwall, this pilgrimage reflects this long history, allowing you to encounter more than 100 pre-historic sites through South Wales and the South West. It is based partly on the Lands End Way, with alternative routes over Exmoor or across Wessex also on offer. If you have a few months to spare, and wish to do honour to the ancient stones of Pembrokeshire, Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Exmoor and St Michael’s Mount, then this trail could be the way forward.
