Brampton to Lanercost

Birdoswald is located in one of the most picturesque settings along the whole of Hadrian’s Wall, overlooking the River Irthing gorge. It is unique because at no other point along the wall can all the components of the Roman Frontier system be found in such a small area.

Lanercost to Banks Turret

An absolutely beautiful spot a pleasant walk west from Housesteads Crag is Sycamore Gap. It was made famous by the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. This walk from Housesteads is my favourite part of the Wall to have a short walk along, the scenery and panoramic views just can’t be beaten.

Housesteads fort was first erected c.AD128, before the narrow wall was built, and destroyed (and rebuilt) several times during its lifetime, in AD197, 296 and 367, before being finally abandoned around the turn of the fifth century. Artillery platforms may have been added to the ramparts in the early-third century.

Dramatically sited on cliffs overlooking the Solway Firth, this award winning museum is next to a Roman fort probably founded in the first century AD and rebuilt during the reign of the emperor Hadrian. Most of the objects in the Museum derive from the fort at Maryport and the Roman civil settlement attached to it. The museum displays the largest group of Roman military altar stones and inscriptions from any site in Britain and unique examples of Romano-British religious sculpture.
