The Northern Saints Trails are a collection of six long-distance walking trails based on ancient pilgrimage routes. They position the North East as the The Crossroads of British Christianity and bring the fascinating stories of the region’s Saints to life. The trails are set against a backdrop of the very best of the region’s attractions, landscapes, places to eat and drink and accommodation.

The six routes reflect the saint’s journeys and their connections with the North East and also recognise the significance of Durham Cathedral as a destination for pilgrims for centuries – from connections with St Cuthbert, who was brought to Durham Cathedral from Lindisfarne by monks in the 9th Century, to the Venerable Bede, regarded as one of the greatest Anglo-Saxon scholars whose shrine has lay in the Galilee Chapel at Durham Cathedral since the 14th Century.

We will keep you posted and share photos from Holy Island , Bamburgh , Durham ,Heavenfield, St Paul’s Jarrow and Bede Museum with a visit to Hexham Abbey on Friday
