walk notes

This section of St Oswald’s Way is a walk of two halves with the first section solely on St Oswald’s Way and the second half the route joins and follows the Hadrian’s Wall Trail to Heavenfield, which is the end of the St Oswald’s Way Trail.

After meeting just outside Wall there is a short transfer to Little Bavington (included in the price) for the start of the guided walk.

From here you will be guided through some lovely farmland to Great Whittington and then you will be guided over Toft Hill, the site of a medieval village before you reach the Hadrian’s wall Trail.

Then St Oswald’s Way takes in one of the nicest sections of Hadrian’s Wall with great views back to Simonside before reaching the climax of the walk, the lovely little church at Heavenfield.
