As part of Tyne Valley Film Festival, Northumberland National Park Authority present a screening of The Living Wall at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre followed by a guided walk along part of Hadrian’s Wall, led by Northumberland National Park Historic Environment Officer, Chris Jones.

The Living Wall (1974) – Provided by Yorkshire Film Archive & North East Film Archive Originally transmitted in 1974, The Living Wall is a Tyne Tees Television documentary co-produced with Border Television, which looks at the history of Hadrian’s Wall and the people who lived and worked around the wall in the 1970s. This unique screening close to Hadrian’s Wall itself will be introduced by National Park staff and there will be an opportunity following the film for questions about past and present activity on Hadrian’s Wall.

Included in the ticket is the opportunity to take a guided walk from The Sill to an iconic section of Hadrian’s Wall at Peel Crag.

The walk is less than a mile but will include the opportunity for further discussion so will take approximately 45 minutes.

The film screening takes place at approximately 12.30pm followed by the walk at 2pm.
