Louth to Lincoln – 50 miles, 5 days

St Hugh of Lincoln built Lincoln Cathedral in 1185, and his funeral was attended by two Kings and three Archbishops. For the next 300 years there was a steady stream of pilgrims to St Hugh’s Shrine in the Cathedral, almost as important as that of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury. This route is themed around social justice and religious freedom, starting at Louth Church where the Lincolnshire Rising (against the dissolution of the monasteries and said to inspire the Pilgrimage of Grace) started in 1536, and thousands of protestors marched on Lincoln and briefly occupied the Cathedral.

Low-cost hostels along route – Claxby; and across region.

Discover holy places, and bring your own beliefs.

Pilgrimage by foot is connected with places and landscape, and how those places make you feel. Read about holy places.

At the British Pilgrimage Trust, we believe a pilgrimage should be made on an individual’s own terms. We are founded on the principle that we can all bring our own beliefs to the journey, accessible and welcoming to all.
