Peak Pilgrimage, Peak District – 39 miles – 3 days – Ilam to Eyam. The Peak Pilgrimage is walked from Ilam to Eyam through the beautiful Peak District National Park along a long-distance footpath open to everyone. Experience much beauty, the atmosphere of the twelve churches along the way, and culminate in a celebration of the heroism of the people of Eyam in the face of the plague in 1665. Beginning at Dovedale National Nature Reserve, work your way across the peaks and through the dells – and find soul-healing in the heart of England.
The route is designed for people of all walking abilities and you can take anything from two to seven days over your pilgrimage, with picturesque places to stay each night. Or, if local, you could cover the route in a series of day trips.
