A sample of sketches from my Hadrian’s Wall walk. As you can see we had spectacular weather, but any future walkers bear in mind it can snow in June according to one of our hosts!

Easyish terrain, a clearly way marked route, lots of spring lambs, and honesty boxes of chocolate, crisps, tea, juice ect made this 80-ish miles a joy to walk. Would recommend for anyone interested in history and/or looking for an easy introduction to long distance walking. Don’t rely on the prevailing east wind, book accommodation ahead and make time to visit the spectacular museums.
