St Winefried's Pilgrimage 2017

Day 6: Holyhead to Bodedern

Today's is the shortest whole-day walk of the pilgrimage. After our pilgrimage eucharist, we pick up the coast path passing through woodland to cross back to the main island on the bridge that carries the A55. We then follow the estuary and banks of the river Alaw before heading inland to the Holland Hotel in Llanfachraeth for lunch.Quiet roads will then lead us to our overnight at Bodedern Memorial Hall.
