Hadrian's High Way

Cumbria

164 km / 102 miles
Hadrian's High Way is a 102 mile trail devised, written and illustrated by acclaimed outdoor writer Mark Richards. The trail takes a dynamic, new look at the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and embraces the majestic landscape through which the garrisons marched for 300 years.

There is no better way to view fell country than to follow the Roman road east from the port at Ravenglass, the maritime link with the Roman Empire, passing through wild mountains to ultimately trace the frontier along the Great Whin Sill where the Wall sits proud upon a striking escarpment within Northumberland National Park.

This is a real journey of discovery, linking ten forts, each in turn vital connections underpinning life on the Wall. The trail stretches for just over 100 miles through the constantly changing, thoroughly absorbing, and spellbindingly beautiful landscape of the Lake District, Cumbria and Northumberland .

The trail breaks conveniently at Penrith and the two guidebooks for each part of the trail (Ravenglass to Penrith, and Penrith to Bardon Mill) are available to order from the website below, and from Tourist Information Centres and all good book shops.
