Walking Hadrian's Wall on Tyneside: the route through the urban areas

Many people will be familiar with the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail, but did you know this route avoids the actual line of Hadrian's Wall through the urban areas of Tyneside?

This 12 mile walking guide takes you on a journey through Tyneside following the actual route of Hadrian's Wall. Along the way you will see some of the remaining Roman archaeology as well as the impact the wall had on the cityscape today.

This walking guide was produced by Wallquest, a 3 year community archaeology project led by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and other funders.
