The Old Way
While we're loathe to sound like total pilgrimage nerds, this route is a hot new entry. The British Pilgrimage Trust recently unearthed this ancient passage from the Gough Map - Britain's oldest existing map, which dates back to 1360 - and has set about rerouting it for the modern pilgrim. The rejigged trail skirts noisy thoroughfares (old pilgrimage routes form the foundations of many of today's main roads) and passes through some of England's most Instagram-friendly scenery. Download the interactive maps from its website to see exactly what we mean.
