About Northumberland and Hadrian's Wall
On the very edge of the Roman Empire during the occupation of Britain, Northumberland's renown began when the Emperor Hadrian in AD 122 ordered the construction of a wall from the Tyne to the Solway to separate the land of the Britons from the land of the Picts. Since this time, Northumberland has been referred to as the border county. The majority of the county is actually found to the North of the wall and therefore, it is a common mistake to believe that the wall itself denotes the border between England and Scotland.
Hadrian's wall was originally 73 miles long and five meters high. Although the highest section of the wall now only measures 1 meter high it is nevertheless an impressive example of Roman engineering that should not be missed. There are also many remains of the forts and temples built by the Roman army that are still visible today, such as:
* Chesters Roman Fort
* Corbridge Roman Site
* Roman Vindolanda
Northumberland can also boast numerous thriving market towns (such as Hexham) with a rich history of the Border Reivers that should also interest history lovers.
More recently Northumberland has gained renown for its unspoilt countryside and breathtaking views which seemingly spread as far as the eye can see, making it particularly attractive to walkers and cyclists.
What's to see and do?
The site is located less than half a mile from the most dramatic stretch of Hadrian's Wall between Newcastle and Carlisle and is ideally placed for visiting many of the Roman sites.
As well as being a World Heritage site, Hadrian's Wall was opened in May 2003 as a National Trail Path between Wallsend on the east coast and Bowness-on Solway on the west coast.
There are walks in every direction making it the ideal place for those interested in wildlife, history and archaeology within breathtaking scenery. The Penine Way and the new cycle trail and Penine Bridel Way are also on the doorstep!
For the more sedentary visitor the Hadrian's Wall bus enables you to visit the full length of this magnificent Heritage site in comfort (full details are available from the campsite).
The historic market towns of Haltwhistle and Hexham are also within easy distance from the site and the thriving shopping centres of Carlisle and Newcastle are an easy drive away.
