Lincoln Cathedral Pilgrimage in a Day
Linear Route (Lincoln ‘Journeys of Faith’ series) from Coleby, 9 miles (Google Map Red Line); (or from Navenby, 11 miles; Green Line). Walk the Viking Way along the Dragon’s Back of the Lincoln Ridge in a straight line to the Cathedral. In a short distance visit a high density of churches, interspersed with stunning views atop the ridge across the flat landscape below. At the end of the ridge, descend to enter the city of Lincoln following the same line of direction, but this time passing through the medieval borough of Wigford, visiting three more medieval churches. Then, finally enter Lincoln through its medieval gate and climb the winding ‘Steep Hill’ to arrive at the Cathedral, hopefully in time for Evensong…
Circular Route from the Norman church of Greetwell to Lincoln Cathedral and back (or whichever start point you choose) – 7 miles. Google Map Blue Line. Part of the route follows the Louth to Lincoln Way.
These routes were conceived by the British Pilgrimage Trust.
