Wander safely

When beginning any journey, it's important to ensure you have everything you need to complete it safely. Being prepared practically for your pilgrimage will allow you to relax and really enjoy your time on our routes.

The 'Before you begin...' section will help you purchase or print route cards and download the route map for use offline.

Along with both of these, we advise that you also take the relevant OS map for the stage(s) you are walking.
Our helpful checklist has details of the map you will need with you, as well as helping you make sure you have everything you need to be safe on your pilgrimage.

You will also find links to groups and associations that will provide advice and guidance to help you keep yourselves safe, protect our livestock and care for our beautiful countryside.
