The Celtic Way is a walking route linking ancient
sites in western Britain. it runs from the Pembrokeshire Preseli Mountains across to Stonehenge and Glastonbury. There is also a route from Cornwall up to Stonehenge and a link to Brittany in western France.
This site is the online archive for the original walking guide to the route and
its significant sites.
Details of the 21 sections of the route can be found in these two links:
Stones are the heart of the route.
Ancient sites like Stonehenge and Avebury are a melding of landscape and stone. Their unique features put these sites at the core of our prehistoric heritage.
So our route runs from Pembrokeshire through the ancient sites of south Wales, crossing the Severn into the west of England towards Avebury and Stonehenge.
The route then goes through the Hillforts of Wessex to Glastonbury and down the south-west peninsula to St Michael's Mount and Penwith.
Our hope is that you will use the archive to get more familiar with the
route and sites along the way, but please be aware that the initial work
and publication took place 14 years ago. The walking will have changed in
places as footpath networks evolve. To this end we are undertaking three
pieces of work:
- Updated downloadable leaflets for each section
- Site filming with short information films about significant sites along
- A revised guide with a local infrastructure to get signing and maintain
Progress and links will be posted .
