St Winefried's Pilgrimage 2017

Day 8: Amlwch to Benllech

It's a great day of coastal walking today, on the coast path for almost the entire day, taking in another of the holiest places on Anglesey: St Eilian's well and church. Lunch is later in the day than usual so you might want to eat your pilgrim rolls before you get that far.
