Following the Tyne Valley, most famous for being home to Hadrian’s Wall, following Roman Roads and breath taking scenery. Over 2,000 years have passed since the Emperor Hadrian gave his orders for work on the 84-mile-long Wall to commence, yet the 73 miles of this Roman mega structure that snake across Northumberland’s craggy bluffs and high ridges are some of the best preserved sections.
