Hadrian’s Wall originally ran from coast to coast and spanned 72 miles. Today we are left with only sections of this famous landmark, which cuts though the beautiful Northumberland National Park.
Starting at Lanercost Priory, we trek for 25 miles alongside the only remaining sections of the wall, admiring ancient monuments, beautiful scenery and the skill of the Roman engineers who built this famous landmark, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We camp at a lovely campsite just outside the small town of Haltwhistle.
This may only be a short challenge, but it's still tough and offers all the rewards of achievement!
