The man who has walked and still is walking, the Peak District

Britain, Europe and the World; he has no equal.

John Merrill 

 Walk Guides

"Hiking the sacred paths and trails of the world for others to follow".

"The miracle of life is not to fly in the air, or walk-on the water, but to walk on the earth"- Chinese saying.

"For every mile that you walk, you extend your life by 21 mins."

St. Chad Pilgrimage Walk - 26 miles

From his cathedral in Birmingham where his shrine is now held, to St. Chad's Cathedral in Lichfield, where he was Bishop. The pilgrimage follows paths , canals via Kingstanding, Sutton Park, Little Aston and Wall to Lichfield. It is suggested that it is made into a two day walk/pilgrimage allowing time to explore both cathedrals and attend a service in each. St. Chad is one of England's premier saints and brought Christianity to the Midlands. A colleague of St. Aidan and St. Cedd.

Lichfield Cathedral is a stunning building and is the only one in England to have three towers.
