The Old Way

2-3 week, South East England & London

The Old Way – 250 miles – 3 weeks – Southampton to Canterbury. 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. It takes pilgrims through some of England’s most beautiful landscapes and holy places – some well-loved, others forgotten. Become a living part of the revival of British pilgrimage, by walking the Old Way!
