Hadrian's Wall Trek

Date: July and September 2018

Time:00.00

Hadrian’s Wall was the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire for nearly 300 years. It was built by the Roman army on the orders of the emperor Hadrian following his visit to Britain. The wall is 73 miles long and crossed northern Britain from Wallsend on the River Tyne in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in the west. The wall took 6 years and around 15,000 men to create.

The Wall that you see now is only 10% of the original, over the course of the intervening centuries stone has been removed, buried or destroyed. Hadrian’s Wall has never been the border between England and Scotland. These two kingdoms didn’t exist when Hadrian’s Wall was established. And if it was used as the border today, it would place parts of Cumbria and much of Northumberland in Scotland.

The trek is 25 miles long and will take just one weekend! Our trek takes us from Lanercost Priory to Brocolitia in an easterly direction. On the trek, you will see some breath-taking views and fascinating ruins. The most remarkable Roman monument in the country, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall cuts through Northumberland National Park and attracts trekkers from far and wide. The challenging walks, filled with a stunning backdrop and fascinating history make this an amazing weekend challenge.

The Hadrian’s Wall trek takes place on the 06/07/2018 – 08/07/2018 or 14/09/2018 – 16/09/2018.
