St Michael’s Way

The 12.5mile route is most westerly pilgrim route across Cornwall.

It fairly well signed using a scallop shell symbol. There are the usual problems when there is a stile with a symbol, issuing into a large field: does one go right, left or straight across the field? Take a map to be certain.

  • Cornwall Council has a rather rudimentary site explaining the route. One suspects that they are rather more interested in cycling routes
  • There is a better description on Oliver’s Cornwall site. This is an excellent website packed full of information although it generally lacks maps

Our account of walking St Michael’s Way is in two parts. Part 1 and Part 2. We used a map from a GPS site. Our version is below.
