Pilgrims Way

The Pilgrim's Way Walking Guidebook

The Pilgrim's Way Walking Guidebook

by: Mike Stevens
The Pilgrim's Way is a long distance trail of 134 miles from Basingwerk Abbey on the Dee Estuary to Bardsey Island at the tip of the Llyn Peninsula. It traces an ancient route across the stunning landscape of North Wales, following in the footsteps of travellers since the 7th century who have made the pilgrimage to holy sites and shrines along the way.

The walk passes through the mountainous area of the country, and at one point reaches the foot of Snowdon itself. However, the walk never involves severe mountaineering, although there is some rugged terrain and a few steep sections such as the 'Coffin Path' up to the village of Rowen. There are also stretches of remote moorland, but the route also has many stretches along river banks, through woodland, across fields and along the coastal path.

The author has divided the route into sections as listed below. Each section includes a brief overview followed by detailed route finding instructions plus information about places of interest which are printed in italics. There are also strip sketch maps to support the route finding text. Accommodation is not available at all the end points so careful planning is required. Public transport in some areas is also limited or not available.
