We leave the car park at Cawfields to follow part of the new Hadrian's Wall Path, passing Great Chesters and walking through the Aesica Roman Fort remains. We then go 'turreting', walking across the sites of Turrets 43A and B, Mile-castle 44, then Turrets 44A and B to reach Walltown Crags, enjoying some wonderful views along the way.

We leave the wall to cross a stetch of fell, consisting of some of the best peat bogs in England preserved by the National Park. Reaching the road, it's an easy saunter back to the car park.

Completed in glorious weather on 1 Nov 2016. Maybe that was why it took us over twice as long as the timing suggested here. Many breathtaking views required a lot of photography. I also felt it was more challenging than the grade suggested here. Many ups and downs, some very steep, and finding the correct direction through the bogs was tricky. Good waterproof boots essential. Anyway, a superb walk, probably easy by northern standards but not so for us soft southerners!
