Colm Hayden is a pastor of Saint Godrics this weekend on pilgrimage to Durham to claim an unofficial route of the Camino de Santiago, specifically the English Way. Colm is a strong advocate for the incorporation of a British section to the route of the English Way, which now begins in the ports of Corunna and Ferrol; "The English Way starts in Finchale" he says.This Irish priest wants to claim the British leg to be officially recognized, why on Saturday will make a small six-kilometer route between Finchale Abbey Anglican Cathedral and Durham in North West England.

Symbolically, pilgrims who on Saturday made the small path and arrive at the Anglican cathedral of Durham, can seal their credential and receive a certificate of pilgrimage.Colm Hayden recognizes that efforts for official recognition of this route of the English Way are, at this time, timid, and that administrations could have involved much more. Especially since it is a historical path and arguments for official.

Si tiene su historia está bien que se oficialice.

Yo no lo vería mal, si históricamente es una ruta que fue utilizada... Eso sí, muchos ni se plantearían viajar a Inglaterra para completar el Camino.
