Towers & Spires cycle maps

The Church of England has teamed up with cycling charity Sustrans to produce a series of cycle tours linking the country's Cathedrals and historic church buildings.

The first of the new Towers and Spires series was launched in 2014 in partnership with Sustrans and the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. The 30 mile circular route begins at St Edmundsbury Cathedral and takes in 11 churches through the Suffolk countryside. To download the route map click here. Hard copies will also be available in churches on the route, cycle shops, and Tourist Information Centres. Further details about the launch of the route can be found here.

A further route was launched 2016, in the Diocese of Gloucester, who are offering a choice of 20 or 30 mile route around churches in north of Gloucester. The map can be downloaded here. Further information from Diocese can be found here.

 

Further routes will shortly be available on the Explore Churches website, following the closure of our ChurchDays website. 

 

There are further routes in the planning stages, but if your diocese is interested in being one of the next please contact: Tom Ashley, Church Buildings Officer - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
