St Rumbold’s Way (aka St Rumwold) – Kings Sutton to Buckingham17 miles, 1-2 days.

Follow this infant saint’s life – who is said to have lived for three days in 662. During this symbolic timeframe he pronounced himself a Christian, requested baptism, and then preached a sermon on the Trinity. This route starts at the font he was baptised in, and the second stop is the field where he was born called Chapel Field near Walton Grounds, where there was once a chapel dedicated to him. St Rumwold also foretold his own death and asked to be buried at King’s Sutton for a year, then Brackley for a year, and then permanently at Buckingham, the three anchor points of this route.

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.
