Bishop Chris sets off today, 31st March 2017, as he begins his journey across the length of Cornwall along the pilgrimage route – The Cornish Celtic Way.

Having planted a Glastonbury thorn at St German’s priory at 8.30am this morning -the first sowing of many seeds that he will do along the way – he set off in his adventure.
