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.
