Partly in honour of the Dalai Lamas 80th birthday.
The penniless peace pilgrimage comes to Reading Tuesday the 16th June on its way to Glastonbury.
I have taken part in similar walks in the past and it's a wonderful experience. To see the country in foot, with time to talk and think.
In 2007 I joined a group walking from AWE to London, they had been across all of the UK. http://footprintsforpeace.footprintsforpeace.net/
