St Hilda's Way

N Yorkshire

64 km / 40 miles
St Hilda’s Way is a new (2015) 40 miles long-distance trail in North Yorkshire, starting from Hinderwell and finishing at Whitby Abbey. The walk is designed as a pilgrimage and visits eight Churches and Chapels all dedicated to St Hilda, as well as two other churches named after St Hedda and St Mary. At each location there is a special focus on a different aspect of the saint’s life, something to find in the church and the opportunity for reflection and meditation.

The Way was the idea of the Whitby Anglican churches and its format was inspired by the icon of St Hilda written by Edith Reyntiens, who has given her kind permission for it to be used in the book. Veteran long-distance walkers, Nancy and John Eckersley, have lent their assistance in devising the route and writing the guidebook and there was a launch pilgrimage in 2015 - see weblink below.
