Beginning and ending at Newtown, on the line of the wall, this is really the only part of the wall that you use. Using well-marked footpaths, footbridges and plenty more, this walk is an enjoyable but long stroll. There is nothing too strenuous on the walk, so apart from the length, it should be enjoyed by all ages of walkers. Whilst I did this walk, I was lucky enough to see very young deer, buzzards and plenty of calves. It truly is a gem of a walk.

Attempted this walk in May 2017.After point 6,the river crossing on alleged stepping stones was impassable - few stones could be seen, so I had to retrace steps and take the road. Tried to reach point 7, but path was basically invisible and featured a large herd of very inquisitive young bullocks. Reaching point 7 required a steep climb, traversing barbed wire etc.

We did this walk today 12th October 2012. According to Mr E trex 30 the walk was 11.5 miles not the 9 miles stated . Even so it was a good walk even though the fields were very muddy due to all the rain. Barbara, Jeff and Millie the dog ps we didn't see Hadrian and it was Millies 3rd birthday!
