||The Trail is inspired by Richard Dawkins' book “The Ancestor's Tale”, subtitled “A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Life”. The book traces the evolutionary history of our species, and many others, back to our origins 3.7 billion years ago.
The Human line is the longest (13.5 miles), but you can choose from any one of the shorter routes you will find on the Google map. Each branch will rendezvous with the main trail at specific times (see map) such that the ever-increasing band of 'pilgrims' arrives together at the Dawn of Life ~ Kilve beach, appropriately famous for its fossils. This year, along the trail, rendezvous points will be marked by appropriate words of wisdom, music and performance.
The pilgrims on the human trail start walking at 11am and everyone arrives back at Kilve at around 6.10pm. SEF accepted. Payment for evening entertainment / transport is made online via website nearer the time
