I'm looking at the following two guidebooks:

Hadrian's Wall Path by Mark Richards

Hadrian's Wall Path from National Trial Guides by Anthony Burton

Any thoughts as to which of these two guidebooks has the best utility? I'll be using Ordnance Survey Explorer maps.
The older we get, the better we were.

Hi Landryrk. The missus and I walked it last year and we used the National Trails Guide by Anthony Burton. We also had the Harvey Hardian's Wall Path, detailed waterproof map from National Trails. Both were good and either one would have sufficed alone. The good bit about the guide is that it gives extra information. That's all the information I can give you as were off to walk through Switzerland as of tomorrow morning (10.05.08). Enjoy the wall, We did!
