As part of the BPT’s development of the Old Way, we are working to provide sanctuary to pilgrims along the path: low-cost accommodation with a high-impact experience. Various offers of Sanctuary exist on pilgrim paths across Britain: welcoming pilgrims into the heart of communities.
This project has recently launched in May 2022.
The Sanctuary Project is available exclusively to Friends of the BPT
Pilgrims will contact sanctuaries directly in order to organise accommodation along the various routes tagged ‘Sanctuary’ on our homepage map.
All offers of sanctuary are made in exchange for a donation – at each church’s discretion, between £5-£20 per pilgrim, depending upon facilities offered, or with a sliding scale based on a pilgrim’s income.
