If you are interested in walking the Way of St James yourself, you can find more information at Way of Saint James in Galicia or The Pilgrimage Routes to Santiago de Compostela. More information on the Cornish Celtic Way can be found here, St Michael’s Way here and here, and the South West Coast Path here.
