Hadrian’s Wall

We really do live in a great place!

Close to Cumbria and the Lakes, right on the shores of the Solway – and within 45 minutes of one of the most spectacular Roman remains in Britain – Hadrian’s Wall.

In its hay day the wall ran the whole width of Britain, from Wallsend in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in the west – although it’s hard to imagine quite how this was achieved in an age before computers and heavy plant!
