Because of geology the very best views of Hadrian's Wall in this part of Northumberland are from the north, out beyond where the Pax Romana ruled and where the Selgovae lived. So after a short stretch walking alongside some of the best-preserved parts of the Wall, let's head north into barbarian territory and enjoy a circular walk with great views back to Housesteads. A short part of the walk may be muddy after wet weather.

Although almost all of this walk can be done off lead this very much depends upon your dogs disposition with livestock. Both sheep and cows will be encountered. If your dog has a tendency to chase then it should be kept on lead at all times. Northumbrian farmers have a reputation for shooting first and asking questions later.
