Walltown Crags

Once Brewed for Steel Rigg


Change here for the short walk to Steel Rigg or continue
to walk along the iconic Wall to Sycamore Gap, one of
the most famous images of Hadrians Wall as a Sycamore
tree nestles alongside the Wall amongst some fantastic
views in all directions.

This is one of the finest places to see Hadrians Wall,


where it snakes and dives through dramatic countryside
along the crags of the Whin Sill. Not only is the Wall
well preserved here, but it also shows how the soldiers
who built it coped with the presence of large outcrops
of natural rock. At one end is Walltown turret, which
unusually was first built as a free standing tower.
