Housesteads Car Park

20 Aug 2022

West Tynedale Ramblers Wellbeing Walk Leaders and National Park Volunteers have designed walks suitable for people wanting an introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park. Whilst still more challenging than urban walks, our friendly leaders have chosen easier routes and will walk at a pace suitable for all.

In Hadrian’s Wall 1900th anniversary, come and walk some of the high points of Hadrian’s Wall. We’ll meet at the Housesteads car park and take the AD122 bus to Brocolitia for the start of the walk. From Brocolitia, we pass the Mithraeum and Covatina’s well as we join the Hadrian’s Wall Trail going westwards.

We will pass over Sewingshields Crag, yet another of the legendary sleeping places of King Arthur and one of the higher parts of the Wall, with excellent views all around. The landscape is full of archaeological features which were ancient even before the time of the Romans. After a moderately steep descent we will arrive at Housesteads, one of the major forts of the Wall.
