A Boot Up Hadrian's Wall

Britain's Roman Wall is one of the great frontiers of the classical world. Ten circular walks are featured in this pocket-sized book, each maximising feet-on and visual experiences both of archaeology and the landscape. They vary in length from 3 to 8 miles and are aimed particularly at families and groups of friends out to enjoy the incomparable World Heritage Site. Starting locations are scattered from an abbey at Lanercost, Cumbria to a fort at South Shields, which was the main North Sea supply base. In between, across wild hill country in Northumberland National Park, surviving sections of Hadrian'sWall are packed with remains of garrisons, milecastles, turrets and linear defences, often with their own local museums.

The format and descriptions make for troublefree walking with the bonus of all the history you can see being flagged-up en route. Words and photographs convey the distinctive character of each length while specially prepared mini-maps are also easy to follow.
