Pilgrim Routes of the British Isles

    By

    This book leads the modern traveller along some of the key medieval walking routes of Britain, taking in world-famous sites such as Canterbury and Lindisfarne in addition to out-of-the-way places along paths not so widely travelled. Each walking route has easy-to-follow directions that guide walkers step by step on a journey of discovery. Illustrated throughout in colour, this practical book provides clear maps and informative commentary on the history of each route, as well as its current landscape, shrines, art and architecture, making this an ideal starting point for those looking for new places to visit and routes with a difference to walk. As well as suggesting some fresh walking ideas, the book offers an understanding of the history, significance and practices surrounding the pilgrim routes and sites of Britain, helping us to follow in the footsteps of our forebears and gain invaluable insights into their medieval world.
