The St Cuthbert’s Three-Church Trail links the three St. Cuthbert’s churches in North Tyne and Redesdale, travelling from Elsdon to Corsenside and Bellingham.
The three churches are dedicated in the name of St Cuthbert, as being places where his coffin rested in the 9th century or even places which Cuthbert may have visited in the 7th century as he made long missionary journeys in remote Northumbria.
The trail is walked as an annual pilgrimage on or around St Cuthbert’s Day, celebrated on 4th September (an official alternative date to the traditional 20th March). The Trail and Churches are open everyday. Come and enjoy the picturesque landscape and heritage of rural West Northumberland and visit the historic St. Cuthbert Churches at Bellingham, Corsenside and Elsdon which are open for everyone - pilgrims, walkers and visitors.
The Trail is signposted and the St. Cuthbert's Three-Church Trail Walking Guide is available in the three St Cuthbert’s churches (suggested minimum donation £5 (+ p&p if required) or by emailing [email protected]
