About this Event

A 1-day Pilgrimage from Nutbourne to Chichester Cathedral

Distance: 10 miles

This is a British Pilgrimage Trust event that follows a 1-day stage of the Old Way to Canterbury, and we make pilgrimages that encounter Britain in new (and very old) ways...

Make pilgrimage through Saxon and Roman Sussex along the deep south coast, via:

Chichester Harbour Channels: Walk round the picturesque Nutbourne, Bosham and Fishbourne channels that feed into the West Chichester coastline.

Chidham: The birthplace of St Cuthman (the Wheelbarrow Saint).

Bosham: The oldest site of Christianity in Sussex, and one of Britain’s only featured locations on Ptolemy’s Geographica of 150 AD.

Chichester: The iconic Cathedral and Bishops’ Palace.

Open to All, Bring your own beliefs.

***

This Pilgrimage will include:

- New ways of meeting old Churches (bring your own beliefs!)

- Group pilgrim songs on the path

- Occasional stretches of silence

- Rediscovering your place in the British pilgrimage tradition

- Natural beauty and the wild places between the roads

- Holy and Historic sites of various kinds

***

Travel

We will start at Nutbourne Train Station on Saturday morning at 9 am. Train is the best way to travel to and from a pilgrimage, which starts and ends in different places, but driving is also an option if you return to the start point via train or taxi - there is parking available at the train station.

While we usually encourage pilgrims to use public transport wherever possible, we ask that pilgrims consider theirs and others' safety when making plans to travel via public transport at this time.

The pilgrimage will end at Chichester Cathedral by 6.30 pm.

Guidance from Alice - Project Leader, Old Way. She will offer traditions to help your pilgrimage come to life - including stories and suggested pilgrim rituals. She will lead you along a beautifully considered route with capable navigation. You will receive support when you need it, and space when you don't.

FAQ’s

What are the COVID restrictions? Please read our guidance here.

Who can come? Anyone over 18 (or under 18 with parental guidance, bearing in mind the walking distance).

Is this religious? All and no-faiths are equally welcome. We operate an Open to All policy. We ask that all participating pilgrims tolerate one another, whatever their beliefs.

Are there fitness limitations? If you struggle to walk all day, this pilgrimage may be unsuitable for you right now. There are always plenty of escape points en route. But we will walk slowly, and start early. Unfortunately this pilgrimage is not suited for mobility-impaired people or those requiring wheelchair access.

Can I bring my dog? Sadly not - we can’t accommodate dogs on our guided pilgrimages. However, if you have a registered assistance dog, they are welcome.
