Having just finished the walk last week, I would do the following if I was walking it again:

1. Skip the Wallsend to Heddon-on-the Wall day.
2. Skip the Carlisle to Bowness on Solway day.
3. Add the two days saved thusly to visit the Chesters fort, Birdoswell fort, Househeads fort, and do a circuit walk to Vindolanda fort.

This walk was not a "grand" as the C2C but the Roman history was palpable.

Ha....I wondered if someone may clock that. I haven't even got my head round it yet. In a couple of weeks I am supposed to be helping with a group of people who want to learn the basics of GPS. Although I have had basic training myself I have forgotten it because I really can't ever see myself using one in the future. I just need to refresh my tiny brain so I don't come across as being totally stupid.

Take Rottie with you so even if you do come across as being totally stupid (very unlikely) then they won't dare tell you! smirk

Good Evening Everyone!!

I am new to this forum.

My Mate and I & my dog are for walking Hadrain's Wall in Early May for Cancer Research, as I have had a lot of family members and friends who have died with cancer.

What I am looking for does anyone on here have a list of B&B that would allow dogs to stay or people who have walked with dogs and who knows the area plus any recommendations, we are looking to do the walk in 5 days.

Any advice would be good.

Many Thanks
Eugene[b][/b]

Take me:That way, if you do come across as totally stupid,nobody will notice.
I don't even charge a fee.
Make sure there is beer.
