The Coventry Pilgrimage was established as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Diocese of Coventry. Essentially it circles the area generally following ‘A Coventry Way’ but incorporating as many churches as possible, and ending at Coventry Cathedral.
The Coventry Pilgrimage route passes through the towns, villages and areas of Meriden, Berkswell, Carol Green, Burton Green, Crackley, Kenilworth, Stoneleigh, Stareton, Bubbenhall, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Wolston, Bretford, Brinklow, Nettle Hill, Ansty, Barnacle, Bedworth, Fillongley, Corley Moor, Allesley, Coundon, Spon End and Coventry.
Most of the route follows ‘A Coventry Way’ in a circular route around the city but also includes sections that will take you to the churches that have supported pilgrims in the past.
The hope is it will continue over the years and grow into what the communities on the route want to make of it – perhaps even into a pilgrimage such as the route to Santiago de Compostela.
