Book review: Walking Hadrian's Wall Path by Mark Richards
A summer holiday spent in beautiful Northumberland had the Hay family falling in love with Hadrian's Wall and all thinjs Roman.
So much so, that we decided next summer to walk part of it! So the new guide by Mark Richards is jsut the ticket to help us on our way.
Produced by experts at Cicerone Press, this lovely guide is cover with a special case to keep it dry and it will fit in your pocket too.
The 84 mile Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail defines the northern edge of the ancient Roman province of Britannia and reaches from Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria to Wallsend in Newcastle.
The guidebook is a great asset to any walker and helps you pass important historical sites. It also has a map booklet containing all that is needed for the walk.
The trail takes a week to walk, but the guide is presented in a leisurely 10-stage format with suggestions for five and eight day itineraries and is suitable for people of all abilities.
And its just what you need to inspire you to walk this World Heritage Site and enjoy all its history and scenery.
