walk notes

A delightful walk passing the famous Roman remains and museum at Vindolanda, the iconic Sycamore Gap and Housesteads Roman fort.

From Bardon Mill we follow the Chainley Burn to Vindolanda and then proceed to Twice Brewed Inn and Steelrigg and walk along the famous Whin Sill section to Housesteads with spectacular views and photo opportunities along the Wall and across its loughs (ponds).

The final section heads south on grassy paths and country lanes back to Bardon Mill.
