Hadrian's Wall Path

A walk from Halton Shields, Sun, 26 May 2013 by David Purchase

preceding legThis trip is part of a series.next leg

A record of a ten-day walk along the Hadrian's Wall Path, from east to west, in May / June 2013.

This was the first Long Distance Path for which I attempted to get a continuous chain of photos, without gaps or diagonals. I failed in the centre of Newcastle (I have never been a 'city person'), but the chain is complete from NZ2163 to Bowness-on-Solway in NY2262. That is a 'straight-line' distance of almost exactly 100 km.

For the final square on this leg, NY8571 The Temple of Mithras, Carrawburgh, please look for images with IDs 2558236 and 2558252, taken some six years earlier and not repeated.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
