Pilgrimage route and long-distance walk between Chester and Lichfield

​The Two Saints Way is a 92-mile pilgrimage route between the cathedral cities of Chester and Lichfield. The route can be walked from either the north or the south,  through the beautiful countryside of Cheshire and Staffordshire along footpaths, canal paths and lanes which link the villages, towns and cities along the way.

​If you walk from Chester to Lichfield the easier walking is at the beginning and you have time to prepare for the hillier section in Staffordshire. However, if you walk between October and March from Lichfield to Chester the views are often better as the sun is behind you.
