Patteson's Way

We invite you to make a pilgrimage with Bishop John Coleridge Patteson on a circular – ‘Patteson’s Way’. The eight mile pilgrimage visits the main sites associated with Bishop John Coleridge Patteson – Feniton, Alfington, Ottery St Mary and Patteson’s Cross in East Devon, and can be walked in a day or in four stages.
