Newcastle, Hadrian's Wall, June 27, 2010

Just a few miles from Newcastle, this is one of the most accessible areas of Hadrian's Wall. This Roman wall was largely dismantled into order to construct local homes and castles in centuries past. It is possible to walk the route along the wall, and we saw many people doing that. The road we traveled runs very close to the original wall site. The original wall was massive (20 feet high).
