Walking the Pilgrims’ Way: Day 14 – Wye to Canterbury

    I started the final day of this gratitude pilgrimage of walking the Pilgrims’ Way very early.  I wanted to make the most of every second of this day.   A few miles out of Wye,  I soon entered the 5,000 acre Kings Wood.  Pilgrims  would have congregated together before entering the wood so they…
