A few things to know

It started with a small selection of personal photographs taken along Hadrian’s Wall, and it just grew from there. While I’ve tried to present things clearly and unbiasedly, I cant be held responsible for the accuracy of any of the information provided: even among professional historians and archaeologists there remains a great deal of controversy regarding Hadrian’s Wall. If you do find a mistake, or think the site could be improved, please let me know by emailing me.

For those inspired to visit the area, you may notice that many of the photo’s involve nice bright sunny days. However, even in summer the weather can be unpredictable. Paths described may be pleasant for walking in fine weather, but can become slippery, boggy and even dangerous in wet or wintry weather, so please come prepared.

In time, I hope to add some ideas for walks in the local area. However, any descriptions should not be used in place of a proper map or planning the route yourself (aafter, all it’s half the fun). The OS Explorer OL 43 which covers the central area is a great map and contains dozens of potential routes.  

Some local walks may involve walking on minor roads; whilst most are quiet, care is still needed. One road that is not suitable for walking along is the B6318 (the Military Road). Running parallel to long stretches of Hadrian’s Wall, it can be very straight and consequently cars and lorries can charge along it with surprising speed. Exercise caution if you cross it and avoid walking along it. Finally, many local walks cross farmland. Livestock is a vital part of the rural economy: please be responsible if you bring a dog.
