The Cornish Pilgrimage

Although this project is under construction it has been founded in honour of Cornwall Hospice Care and provides walkers/cyclists with an opportunity to discover this ancient and modern kingdom. The route contains 9 sections including a circular Gwennap Pilgrimage which we will be walking this year on August Bank Holiday Sunday from the Coppice Inn car park, at Lanner around 10am. The main Pilgrimage route spans Cornwall from Morwenstow Church on the north coast to St Michael’s Mount on the south; from here there are 3 extension routes to Land’s End. As well as introducing the idea as a ‘Journey of Discovery’, we are also inviting participants to raise awareness/funds for Cornwall Hospice Care; those taking part in the pilgrimage will have a passport to collect stamps along the way. I hope to be walking the route in the middle of August and expect to be in the Gwennap Region in order to complete the Bank Holiday Pilgrimage on my way to Michael’s Mount.
