St Illtyd's Way - 77 miles - 8 days - Pembray to Margam. The Abbey at Llantwit Major - home of one of the Perpetual Choirs of Britain - was founded by the the great Saint Illtyd. Illtyd’s college is believed to be Britain’s earliest centre of learning - Saint David, Saint Patrick, and Gildas were all educated there. As a result of his piety, sagacity, and miraculous power, Saint Illtyd was held in high veneration throughout Wales. This pilgrimage has been created in his honour. The route skirts the edge of scenic Swansea Bay, beginning with the rustic beauty of Pembray Country Park, and concluding at another Country Park at Margam - that boasts six ancient monuments; including two hill forts and ruined medieval churches.
