We'll meet up in the most dramatic, central, section of Hadrian's Wall and hike along and north of this ancient frontier of the Roman Empire for about 13 kilometres (9 miles). [A shorter, half day, hike is also available - see my other Experience]. We'll explore the natural and historic landscape of Wall country, learn how to interpret the shape of the countryside and gain insight into the processes and people that shaped it. Bring a picnic to eat in a 2000 year old Roman milecastle! and end with a cup of coffee, tea, or a glass of beer back where we started. You'll acquire basic skills that will help you begin to satisfy your curiosity about the natural landscapes all around us. The countryside around you will never seem the same again. The weather can be changeable and picking good weather days well in advance can be a challenge; so days additional to the calendar are available, please contact me to arrange a date. Pick ups from local accommodation and stations possible. If you'd like to couple this hike with scaling some of England's highest mountains in the Lake District, get in touch and we can discuss dates, logistics and cost.
Let me share an insider's knowledge of this amazing natural and historical landscape with you. I'm a local, but also a professional geologist, a trained Wall guide, a hiker, runner and biker and a lover of all things natural. Raised in Cumbria, I did my degree in Newcastle. I was with British Geological Survey making geological maps in Northumberland and the UK and then across the world, before becoming a BGS director and science consultant to the BBC for 6 landscape documentaries. Today I am a trustee of 3 local wildlife, landscape and environment charities in Northumberland.

Thousands of people visit The Wall every year - I want to give small groups of people the opportunity to take a deeper and more insightful look. See the Wall from viewpoints few venture to, look at the whole landscape through a professional geologist's eyes. Walk and talk about how and why Hadrian built his Wall and explore the rich history of this countryside before and after the Roman Empire. And what its like being part of this community today
