Walk the Saints Way

Fowey PL23 1JU

We say

The 27-mile Saints Way travels across Cornwall from Padstow on the north coast to Fowey on the south. The route was used by traders as far back as the Bronze Age, and by the 5th or 6th century it was busy with traders needing to avoid the treacherous waters around Lands End. Although the path connects various historical shrines, forts and holy sites, there is no actual evidence of it being used by pilgrims. The entire route can be walked in a not-too-strenuous three days, but for those with less time or energy, just set out from Fowey, following the path upriver towards Golant to enjoy the peace and plentiful wildlife on the river estuary.
