Hadrian’s Wall was, during the times of the Roman, Rome’s most northern frontier. The 80-Roman mile wall stretched across the north of England from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend just east of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Hadrian’s Wall Path Walk is an 84-mile National Trail that follows the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall.
The trail passes many forts and ruins.
