Review:

Publisher's website 2018

Comprehensive, this is the only companion you need to walk this well-loved path. Since it opened in 2003, Hadrianís Wall Path has become one of Britainís most popular long-distance paths. Its 84 miles are a convenient weekís walking, shadowing for the most part the historic line of Hadrianís Wall in its spectacular progress across the superbly wild landscape of the north of England.

Starting in what used to be Tynesideís shipbuilding heart, and joining Newcastle in the east with Carlisle in the west, it takes you via the extraordinary Roman forts of Vindolanda and Housesteads, close to handsome towns like Hexham and Corbridge, to finish on the lonely shores of the Solway Firth with views of Scotland.
