    We stopped here to make our visit to the wall of Hadrian, while talking with responsible for customer service, they convinced us to move a few kilometers further, to a point called Steel Rigg, whose view is spectacular.

    Despite the appalling weather we walked up to this part of the wall and its milecastle, the road up to the car park is narrow but well signposted and there is a good car park (pay & display) with toil...  more »

    Good walk, cracking length of Roman wall, excellent views, but not for the faint hearted, quite up and down.  more »

  • A good stretch of wall with the vallum visible to the south of the wall. Great scenery. Toilet and picnic facilities.
  • A fantastic section of Hadrian's Wall which has sweeping views across the country side. Quite a hilly start, if heading east from the quarry car park but it soon eases to a more gradual climb before levelling off in a few miles. Cawfield Quarry car park is ideal with plenty of space, picnic tables & loos. The car parking is pay & display, circa £3 ~ ish for the day, but the ticket is valid at all 6 English Heritage sites along the wall, so quite good value for money, for a car parking charge! The area boasts suffering from some of the least light pollution in England & is supposed to be ideal for star gazing. This location would be ideal & there is a star map on display to help get you started.
  • Breathtaking natural beauty and a dark sky zone, shame it was cloudy when we were going to visit at night!
  • amazing views
  • Awesome!
