For around three centuries, Hadrian’s Wall was a vibrant, multi-cultured frontier sprawling almost 80 miles coast-to-coast. Built by a force of 15,000 men in under six years the UNESCO World Heritage Site is as astounding today for its sheer vision as it is for its engineering. Milecastles, barracks, ramparts and forts punctuate a diverse landscape that provides a dramatic backdrop from Newcastle on the east coast, through Northumberland and Cumbria right across the breadth of England to the west coast at Whitehaven.
