An impressive guide book that coincides with the growing interest in pilgrimage as an aspect of ‘wellness’ tourism that benefits body, mind and spirit.

The guide is packed with information both practical and historical. It is an attractive publication with OS map extracts and numerous high quality colour photos.

The Two Saints Way has a symmetrical structure with the two cathedrals at either end, Stoke Minster in the middle and two churches dedicated to St Mary at the quarter points. With this in mind, the 92 mile route is divided into four colour coded sections – 1: Chester to Nantwich, 2: Nantwich to Stoke, 3: Stoke to Stafford and 4: Stafford to Lichfield. Each section is further divided into four stages of between 3.5 and 8.5 miles in length. The route is described in both directions.

Highlights on this varied route include Beeston Castle, Englelsea Brook Chapel and Museum, the Staffordshire Hoard at the Potteries Museum, Trentham Gardens and Cannock Chase Area of outstanding Natural Beauty. The guide contains a wealth of fascinating information on many features of interest.
