St Michael’s Way is a pilgrimage coast to coast walk 12.5 miles from Lelant Saltings to St Michael’s Mount which was thought to have been used by pilgrims, missionaries and travellers, especially those from Ireland and Wales, to avoid crossing the treacherous waters around Land’s End.
Throughout Europe there is a network of pilgrim routes which lead to one of the three most important places of Christian pilgrimage in the world – the Cathedral of St James in Santiago de Compostela, North West Spain. The St Michael’s Way Trail is one of these routes.
I am walking St Michaels Way in five easy stages mainly because I need to leave the car at point A walk to point B and then return to point A so in effect have walked St Michael’s Way both ways! I like to spend time taking photographs and have no need to hurry… I intend to create a guide book at the end of this pilgrimage.
