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. Once this project is up and running on the Old Way, we see the provision of Sanctuary upon pilgrim paths opening out across Britain: welcoming pilgrims into the heart of communities across the UK. We encourage people to take it on in their local area, all around Britain.

This project is set to launch in Spring 2021, subject to government guidelines regarding COVID-19 restrictions. 

The Sanctuary Project will be available exclusively to Friends of the BPT

Pilgrims will contact sanctuaries directly in order to organise accommodation along the Old Way.

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.

This project is in its infancy: we are working to gauge the level of interest in Sanctuary, which will help us to improve this offering. To register your interest, click here:
