Pilgrims on the Move

The pioneer group that founded the Pilgrim's Way North Wales, see, have been walking the path which commences at Basingwerk Abbey near Holywell and stretches all the way to Bardsey Island at the tip of the Llyn Peninsula. Here they are in Penygroes with my minibus in the background. I had picked them up from Trefor and returned them to their cars. In the hat is Mike Costello who had handled the transport on the eastern sections. I managed to join them last Tuesday and walked from Llanasa to St Asaph cathedral.

Walking up Gop Hill in the pouring rain
Lots of good cattle on this walk and plenty of interesting farmland of different types.
As happy as a pig in ...
Lunch in the tiny St Beuno's chapel in the woods.
The chapel near Tremeirchion that kindly provided us with tea and fantastic cakes
Journey's end at St Asaph and just in time for choral evensong which they hold at the chapel every Monday and Friday at 6pm. Beautiful singing and organ music.


  1. Looks a great day despite the rain.

  2. Can anyone recommend good photo opportunities on the walk? Which is the most picturesque stretch?

  3. What a lovely way to finish a hard days walking.
