Description

Our 8 mile journey is organised jointly with St Davids Cathedral's Ty'r Pererin Education & Pilgrimage Centre and begins in the city of St Davids, in reality a small, attractive village. It was here that St David founded a monastery in the sixth century on a promontory pushing out to sea at the furthest point of south west Wales. This foundation became a major centre of Celtic Christianity and an important place of pilgrimage. Today the lovely Cathedral of St David lies in a little valley in what is perhaps the most rural ecclesiastical setting in Britain.

This is a 'thin place' where the boundary between heaven and earth is narrow...From St Davids we walk to the coast at St Non's where St David was born - on a cliff top during a raging storm! Thereafter its magnificent sea views all the way to St Justinian.

Cost:
The walk is free, simply bring a packed lunch. There will be a small charge for the bus from St Justinian's to St Davids.

To book a place please contact info@journeying.co.uk

Accommodation:
If St Davids is too far to travel in one day and you would like to book B&B accommodation on the Friday and/or Saturday, we can offer accommodation in a cosy cottage in the former fishing village of Llangwm, with transport to and from St Davids on the Saturday. Please contact Iain Tweedale (see below) for details.
