Wild Wales – with the wind in your hair, the mountains rising up before you and the roar of the sea below you, the 21st century pilgrim can reconnect with the wonder of this ancient land.
To go on pilgrimage is to set aside time to wander and wonder.
A route across North Wales from East to West, ending on Enys Enlli/Bardsey Island has recently been established.
In North Wales since Medieval times, pilgrimages have been made to four important religious centres – Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli), Gwytherin, a remote area of North Wales , Clynnog Fawr near Caernarfon and St Winefride’s Well in Holywell.
The route starts at Basingwerk Abbey, a 13th Century Cistercian Abbey on the Dee Estuary.
The walk first goes through the Greenfield Heritage Park to St Winefride’s Well. A place of pilgrimage since the 7th Century.
