Hadrian’s Wall Walk

Back in June we went for a walk with Shannon, Myles, Danny and Emma.  We planned to walk along the route of Hadrian’s Wall.  The wall was the idea of the Roamn Emperor Hadrian and started around AD122.  The wall stretches from Newcastle on the East coast of England to Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast of England.  The whole wall was about 70-80miles wide.  We walked from Corbridge to Bowness on solway because the inital newcastle bit is not that nice.  We started on monday morning and walked about 10-13 miles (16-20 kms) per day.  We stayed in pubs and B&B’s each night and ate and drank ourselves stupid, including a lot of black pudding.


The Crew, in Corbridge, ready to start – rain and about 13 miles that day, sore feet but cold beer at the end of it all.
