The Hike Along Hadrian’s Wall: Part 1

Welcome back readers! Today we walked from the Roman fort of Birdoswald back to our accommodations in Haltwhistle. We started walking at about 9:30 in the morning and ended at about 3pm. We passed through many mile castles and turrets along the wall and also Willowford bridge, an important river crossing the river Irthing. The hike was incredibly beautiful and difficult at times we went up and down four steep hills. We hiked through farmers fields along the footpath and came across a friendly horse and a baby sheep. All in all, a good day! I am excited to continue hiking along the beautiful paths along Hadrian’s Wall on Saturday.
