Day walk from the Shrine to the Wye Pilgrims Festival: 29 September 2018

The North Downs Way Pilgrims Festival 2018 is a week-long series of events in Wye celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the North Downs Way.

We welcome you all to join us; for a short walk or a mighty journey; for those who love nature and our countryside or want to learn more about cultural heritage. We have drama, literature, film, food, drink, and much, much more.

Augustine Camino is walking from the Shrine of Saint Jude on Saturday 29 September 2018.

A 13 mile Day Walk from the Shrine of Saint Jude Faversham to Wye, arriving in time for the Festival Pilgrim Feast. The route takes us through woodland and pasture (including the famous King's Wood) before descending the Downs to Wye. There are a number of interesting village churches along the way such as St James's Sheldwich, where we will be welcomed by fellow Augustine Camino pilgrims. Also en route is All Saints, Boughton Aluph which includes the porch where pilgrims used to gather before crossing King's Wood together for safety (hopefully this will not be necessary on our walk!). Lunch will be at the Red Lion Badlesmere.
