Hadrians Wall - Fulfilling a Lifetimes ambition

As of tomorrow I head up North to Carlisle to begin the best part of a 80 mile trek along Hadrians Wall.

Joined by my 12 year old son we are marching in the footstep of the Legions so many years ago. With a fascination for all things history and miltary this has long been a lifes ambition.

With a bit a bit of fair weather we might even enjoy ourselves !

If local Wifi permits I ll post a short daily blog to keep you up to date on progress and then I'll add the photos at the end of the week. We will be back in London on Friday just in time for Salute..

Wish us luck and first post hopefully tomorrow !!



  1. Enjoy!!!
    And don't forget your camera!

  2. Good luck to you!
    I walked it last year for Teenage Cancer Trust and it is an absolutely stunning trek. I hope the weather works out for you. I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time anyway.

    All the best,


  3. Enjoy the walk, you'll be covering some of the best countryside in England. One of the advantages of living up North is the wall is only a 1/2 hour drive, then we have castles just about everywhere.

  4. Have fun, try not to tread to closely in the foot steps of the Legion, they didn't fare to well on our side of the wall! :)

    Hopefully the weather should stay clear for you.

  5. Sounds like fun! Hope you and your boy haveca great time!

  6. Great stuff :-) sounds like a good idea
