Pilgrim's Way

The North Wales Pilgrim's Way is a 127 miles route from St Winifrede's Well near Holywell in Flintshire to Bardsey Island.  It was defined and first walked in 2011.

Basingwerk Abbey and St Winifrede's Well in Flintshire are ancient religious sites, now linked to Bardsey Island, considered a holy destination by generations of pilgrims.

Following a route which visits many other sites of religious significance, the newly-defined Pilgrim's Way was first walked as a modern pilgrimage in August 2011.
