It was fascinating to learn that this wall is the largest Roman archaeological feature in Britain, runs a total Easy to find Roman forts, harder to find a good stretch of wall. Try Steel Rigg. Really interesting though. We visited a section of the wall just outside of Banks village. There was a decent chunk of the wall on view, and also a sign helpfully bringing the missing parts to life by way of an illustration and description.
Leaving Canada I was excited to do this hike. We were hiking from Bowness-on-soloway to Segadunum. I was very disappointed to find that after 3 days of hiking, no wall to be found! The only existing part of the walk is around Twice Brewed.

Lovely scenery all around.
Great to appreciate the history, you can imagine the people and history this place has. We need bridges now not walls!! Lovely place to visit even with young children, felt it was a little bit expensive for what we got, but all enjoyed it. Nowadays there's very little wall left as a lot of it has been filched for local buildings. But it's well worth walking the HW walk itself because it's through some spectacular countryside with good places to stay.

Finally — Bowness on Solway is the end of our journey. The Temple of Mithras is a fascinating temple dedicated to the god beloved by Roman soldiers. It was the largest of such buildings to occupy the site and, like many Mithraic temples, it was situated near a military base.

On the site of Vindolanda, a bonfire was started to burn the documents from the commanding officer's house c. AD before the 9th cohort of Batavians were sent on their next campaign in Dacia, Romania. The variable Northumbrian weather, aided, perhaps, by careless servants, had ensured that the fire had been extinguished before the flames had completed their work, thus preserving hundreds of written documents for archaeologists to uncover.
