Cornish Celtic Way

The Cornish Celtic Way is a new pilgrimage route covering 125 miles through Cornwall from St. German’s to St. Michael’s Mount. It incorporates over 60 miles of the Cornish coastal path as well as two established pilgrimage routes: The Saints’ Way and St. Michael’s Way. The Cornish Celtic Way is divided into 16 walks that can be done as a whole over about 2 weeks or can be completed in sections over a longer period of time.

The starting point is St Germans Priory, with accommodation possible at the first stop at Downderry. All details from the organisers, Rev Nigel Marns. Please refer to the website https://www.cornishcelticway.co.uk/.

At St Germans after viewing the church, pause at the Glastonbury Thorn, planted to mark the beginning of the Cornish Celtic Way, and collect your 'shell stamp' for your passport at the village shop.
