  • Day 2 Chollerford to Housesteads

    9.25 Miles / 15 Km 4-5 Hrs 1050 ft / 320 Metres

    Through the Northumberland National Park you reach a Roman temple at the Fort of Brocolitia. After passing more castles and turrets you suddenly find yourself walking along some of the most spectacular and best-preserved sections of Hadrian’s Wall, which snake up and down along the top of the Northumberland Crags. You end your day at the superbly preserved Fort at Housesteads.

  • Day 3 Housesteads to Greenhead

    10 Miles / 16 Km 4-5 Hrs 950 ft / 290 Metres

    Today starts with more exciting sections of the Wall along steep cliffs and the highest point of the walk at Green Slacks. See Great Chesters Fort with its original Roman altar before you return to the top of the Crags for some more exciting and well-preserved Wall sections. Imposing Thirlwall castle marks the end of today’s walk.

  • Day 4 Greenhead to Lanercost

    8 Miles / 13 Km 3-5 Hrs 490 ft / 150 Metres

    The Wall guides you to the remains of a Roman bridge across the River Irthing, past a Roman Milecastle and on towards the Fort of Birdoswald, which was inhabited for 2,000 years. From there we follow the Wall through a much gentler landscape and stop at Lanercost Priory, once the capital of England for six months.

  • Day 5 Departure from Lanercost

    There are regular train and bus services from nearby Brampton to Carlisle and Newcastle. Full details provided upon booking.
