Hadrian’s Wall Path is a new 84–mile footpath linking Wallsend, near Newcastle–upon–Tyne, with Bowness–on–Solway on England’s west coast. For its greater part, the Path follows the historic line of Hadrian’s Wall. The only National Trail to lie within a World Heritage Site, it offers many opportunities to explore the fascinating history of four centuries of Roman rule. This official guide to the Path contains: the entire route split into convenient sections; precise route descriptions and Ordnance Survey maps for each section, marked with points of special interest; walks to and from major archaeological sites off the main route; background information on archaeology, history, wildlife, and geology; details on public transportation and villages on or near the route with facilities for walkers, including accommodations; and a superb selection of color photos.
