The image below is of Walltown Quarry only
a few hundred yards up the narrow road from
the Roman Army Museum.
Hadrians Wall runs over the high point up
on the left of the image below. This is one
of the best preserved sections of the wall,
and top walking section with great views over
the rugged hills.
It is about 4 miles from Walltown Quarry
to Cawfields Quarry, 9 miles to Housteads
Roman Fort. Between Walltown Quarry and
Housteads is the highest, best preserved, and
most walked sections of the Hadrians Wall
The Hadrian's Wall
Bus runs between these three points,
about 1 an hour, so is good for walking these
top sections then getting the bus back to
your car, or the town you are staying in.
