The Pilgrims' Way or England's Camino
6 Feb 2017 · Leigh Hatts
A new guide to The Pilgrims' Way traces the authentic, ancient pilgrimage route from Winchester to Canterbury, with a link of equal historical importance from London. Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales suggests that April is the time to go on pilgrimage to Canterbury, where was maintained the famous shrine to St Thomas Becket. Many started from Winchester, where a shrine contained St Swithun's body.
