THE CORNISH CELTIC WAY 125 

The Cornish Celtic Way is a new 125 mile Cornish pilgrimage route currently in it's earliest stages of being a complete recognised path. North and South Cornish coast and two already established pilgrim routes blended together.

Celtic Saints engaged with nature and risked everything to bring their Christianity to Cornwall between 500 and 600AD . The Cornish Celtic Way will guide people to walk in their footsteps , see what they saw and experience places of special significance where the saints had been such as Celtic crosses, holy wells, standing stones and churches...
