Compostela and Pilgrim Stamps

From Easter 2020 it will be possible to obtain a Compostela (certificate of completion) for the Augustine Camino. The rules are similar to those for Santiago ie you must walk at least 100km (the length of the Augustine Camino) and collect at least seven pilgrim stamps (roughly one for each leg of the walk). The Compostela will be available from St Augustine’s in Ramsgate for a small fee. Due to Coronavirus disruption the rules for obtaining a Compostela have been relaxed – as long as you have walked the full route you can obtain a certificate.
