Free guided walks on Hadrian’s trail

Free guided walks celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail are taking place this summer.

The next one, from the Senhouse Roman Museum in Maryport to Milefortlet 21 at Crosscanonby Road End, is on Sunday. This six-mile, mostly flat walk will be led by Judy Wagg, who will talk about the area’s geography, geology, history and wildlife along the way. The walk starts at 10am and is expected to last three hours. Phone 01900 881575 to book.

On Monday, there will be an easy walk from Bowness-on-Solway to Port Carlisle. A local guide will talk about the Romans, the Reivers, the Carlisle canal and railways, haaf net fishing and coastal wildlife.

The walk starts at 11am and is expected to finish at about 1.30pm. Phone 01228 625600 to book.

Later walks will look at the heritage of the Bardon Mill area in Northumberland, investigate the geology around Hadrian’s Wall at Cawfields and visit the Edward I Monument on Burgh Marsh.
