In a fascinating, thirteen day trek along across the South Coast, England's Lost Pilgrim Trail retraces the steps of Britain's own pilgrim forefathers. Battling blistered feet and unaccomodating licensing laws, Brian Boughton follows a road not travelled in 500 years. From Dartmouth to Canterbury, an elaborate medieval subculture once thrived around the devotional journeys of a myriad Christian travellers. All of this vanished following the Reformation. In unearthing this lost slice of English heritage, Dr Boughtin discovers a country that has changed just as radically in his own lifetime.
Part travelogue, part historical narrative and part polemic, England's Lost Pilgrim Trail is both an essential guide to the way things were and a provocative look the way they might turn out to be.
