Carlisle & Hadrians Wall

Hadrian's Wall

Carlisle is an historic border city steeped in warfare and strife between the Solway Firth and the Cheviot hills. It has been at the frontier of England’s defences for over a thousand years. When William the Conqueror invaded in 1066 the city was still part of Scotland. Long before this the Romans established Carlisle as the northernmost settlement in their huge empire. Hadrian’s Wall stretches for over 70 miles from coast to coast across the natural beauty and splendour of the Northern Pennines. The Hadrian’s Wall Path has been a recent welcome addition to the network of long distance paths crossing the country. The trail follows the line of the wall built in the second century AD by order of Roman Emperor Hadrian as a defensive barrier that continued in use for most of the next 300 years until the Romans finally left our shores in the 5th century. Good public transport along the wall means that linear walks can be undertaken with some planning. Alternatively there are many circular walks along various stretches of the wall to give a flavour of one of the UK’s greatest monuments, a World Heritage Site, as well as the countryside it crosses.
