Hadrian's Wall Trail

In 122 A.D. the Roman Emperor Hadrian ordered a great wall to be built separating 'Romans from Barbarians' across northern Britain at its narrowest point between the Solway Firth and the North Sea. It was extended and enhanced with impressive stone defences following natural ridge lines and with a deep ditch 'The Vallum' dug alongside it. Later much of the stonework was mortared allowing it to survive the centuries to become one of the oldest structures in the country today. The 135km walking path through rugged moorland, rolling fields and dynmic landscapes opened in May 2003 making it a relatively new trail.
