Description
Waypoints (0)

A circular walk that allows you to explore Hadrian Wall, Steel Rigg, and Crag Loch. On this walk, you will be able to see the most majestic views of Hadrian's Wall which was built with a similarity to what we have now, a toll booth. The wall prevented people from moving in and out of Roman Britain freely. On the grassland, you will notice different flora like wild chive, thyme, and mountain pansies. You will also see many birds such as plovers, skylarks, and curlews. If you are lucky and doing this walk at dusk, you may even be able to see the bats that inhabit nearby farmhouses and barns! Take a breather at a pub and grab a pint. If that doesn't fit your fancy, there are many stores filled with locally made crafts. Please keep your dogs on leads here especially when encountering wildlife. Note, you will have to navigate through stiles, kissing gates, and footbridges.

Great walk with a variety of trails. All trails track recommended cutting through private property so we extended the walk past the farm which made the trip a 8km trip total.
