The Porlock Pilgrim's Trail is 29 miles long and links nine of Exmoor's churches and chapels. The Trail can also be walked in two loops, each 15 miles long and both starting in Porlock, or as shorter day walks.

The Trail passes through ancient oak woodlands, grass meadows and high moorland.  Several streams are crossed, all running north to the sea.  The hills are occasionally steep but never too long and the view from the top of the climb always makes it worth the effort.  

The Guidebook includes:

  • The full route descriptions for the entire 29 mile route, starting and finishing in Porlock, in nine stages

  • Full descriptions of the alternative route to walk the Trail as two 15 mile loops from Porlock

  • Ideas on how to split the Trail into shorter walks 

  • A link to three free to download .gpx files that cover all the routes described in the Guidebook.  These can be used with most smartphone mapping apps and walkers' SatNavs.

  • A one page descriptions of each of the nine churches and chapels to enable you to get the most from your visit

There is a Pilgrim's Trail ink stamp in each church and chapel which can be used, in your Guidebook, to record your walking progress. There is a space at the top of each church and chapel description for you to place your stamp. To help you find them, and to ensure that they don't wander, the ink stamps are attached to old boots.
