Four of us did Hadrian's Wall in May this year and at long last I have written up our antics for anyone who wants to read about four ladies of a certain age and their walking experiences.

Next year it's the coast to coast again, and hopefully the year after WHW....... talk about forward planning!!!!

Thanks for writing that up and for adding the photos, I enjoyed reading it although I can't understand how Brenda lost her Berghaus jacket! Having only walked part of Hadrian's Wall, whilst doing the Pennine Way, I didn't think that I would enjoy it however I will now add it to my "To do" list.

Hadrian's Wall was also written up in the October 2009 issue of Smithsonian Magazine. Nice pictures. The girls frolicking make it look like a lark of a walk compared to the rainy slog we had. wink
The older we get, the better we were.

Hey guys, totally love the blog smile

Anyone know what is the best walking and camping route or a good route map for it? We're struggling, with reviews for the maps being generally bad and we're too poor to do bricked accommodation wink


We don't go until August which isn't so bad but it's proving a headache just to figure out a decent route!!

Love the forum by the way laugh x

dawsome, take a look at the Henry Stedman Hadrian's Wall path book (2nd edition). He lists 8 campsites across the walk and I'm sure that you will find what you need in that little gem of a book.

Good luck
