It’s a perfect location for a UK charity challenge! This most ancient of charity treks takes you from Lanercost Priory to Brocolitia, encompassing some of the most visited and fascinating ruins. Hadrian’s Wall was built in AD122 on the orders of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, and stretched from the East to West coasts of Britain, from Bowness on Solway in the West to Wallsend in the East. It is the most remarkable Roman monument in the country and quite unique throughout the former Empire. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site which cuts through Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall attracts trekkers from all over as it offers great challenging walks, filled with a stunning backdrop and history. An amazing experience with fantastic support awaits – everything from their tented village to exceptional guides and glorious food! Join the team and ‘step back in time’. View the brochure.
