Devon’s Small Pilgrim Places

Five of our churches on The Archangel's Way are part of the Small Pilgrim Places Network, a national group of unique, peaceful spiritual sites.

The Small Pilgrim Places Network is a group of unique places of worship, gardens, ruins, open spaces, holy wells and more, offering ‘breathing spaces on the pilgrim journey’.

Of over seventy truly special spaces spread all over England, Wales and the Isle of Man, nine of them are here in Devon. And of those nine, five of them feature along The Archangel’s Way.
