About the event
Come & be guided on the third section of a unique and special new Pilgrimage route which runs through the beautiful Golden Valley area of Herefordshire. This new pilgrims's path has so much history and natural beauty to discover, we will be spoilt as we wander together. ABBEYDORE DEANERY | GOLDEN VALLEY PILGRIM WAY
We are going to be breaking the route down into managable sections as day walks over the next 6 months giving people chance to experience the route without having to walk it all in one go!
Just like the famous Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route, this Golden Valley path has a beautiful 'credential' (passport), which can be purchased for £5 and can be stamped at various churches along the way giving you satisfaction, and a memory of your walk, (the ticket price for these walks will also incude a donation to the churches that we get the stamps at of £2 per church).
This 9.5 mile section starts at Dorstone village, then heads along the beautiful golden valley through fields and woodland to first Peterchurch, where we visit a Holy well, and then it's up along bridleways & footpaths with hopefully great views of the Black mountains ahead, to the tiny stretched out hamlet of Michaelchurch Escley and it's gem of a church to finish.
(We will be sharing lifts to enable us to get back to the start)
The walk will be led by 'setting our intention' at the start, and there may be sections of reflective quiet walking to contemplate and relax in our natural surroundings.
You are welcome to bring a walking staff as an indication of your pilgrim status, & you will recieve a scallop shell to attach to your ruck sack, also as a sign you are walking the pilgrim way.
