The Roman Wall itself is internationally recognised as a World Heritage Site, but the area's history is much broader than the Roman heritage.
The corridor of land through which the Wall runs offers the visitor an unique view of the region's past. From Iron Age settlements to medieval village sites and 19th century industrial remains, the rich hsitory of the area is preserved in the landscape. Follow these walks and discover it for yourself.
