Pilgrims’ Way churches with stamps

Here’s my list of churches and hostelries along or near the Pilgrims’ Way (Winchester to Canterbury) where you can stamp your passport. They are often found by the guest book by the door, sometimes on a table at the back. I began with a list I found online but it wasn’t accurate, plus we found several not listed anywhere. The listings in blue I can confirm are there in 2023 and we are working our way along.

If you know of one not listed, please leave me a comment.

Winchester Cathedral, you can buy a passport in the gift shop, or just use your own note book or paper

St. Bartholomews (Next to Hyde Abbey, Winchester), closed when I walked

Kings Worthy, had a good look but I couldn’t locate a stamp here

St. Swithun’s, Martyr Worthy

St. John’s, Itchen Abbas

St. John’s, Alresford, locked after noon

St. Nicholas, Bishop’s Sutton, don’t miss this lovely church

Upper Froyle Church, we were offered refreshments here

St. Lawrence, Seale

St. John the Baptist, Pullenham

St. Martha’s, St. Martha’s Hill, closed when I visited midweek

Shere Church open, but somewhat bizarre sign about phoning someone to see if they were available to let you use the stamp
