Devon Pilgrim Routes

Our Devon Pilgrim routes offer the opportunity to explore pilgrimage across the varied landscape that our county has to offer. Whether its journeying through our rich agricultural land, meandering alongside one of our majestic rivers or taking in the awe inspiring landscape of Dartmoor, each Devon Pilgrim route invites you to wander and wonder through our little piece of Heaven in Devon.

Each route has its own Pilgrim Passport, available in the guidebook or downloadable lower on this page. Some routes pause at each church building along the way where you will find stamps to collect. In each church building you’ll also find a mediation, reflection or invitation to prayer. You are welcome to use these in the church building or take them to use outside in nature or along the way. Or you may simply want to focus on your own experience, or enjoy the time without thinking or doing anything at all. It’s up to you.


Our Wander Safely page is full of advice and tips for keeping safe as you wander and protecting our countryside. You will also find instructions for downloading route maps and guides.
