We leave the Cawfields Quarry picnic site to walk along part of Hadrian's Wall, passing Mile-castle 42 on our way to Caw Gap with some magnificent views along the way. Leaving the wall at Turret 41a we cross pastures and the military road to Hallpeatmoss with its stone-flagged farmhouse roof, a rare sight now on old farmhouses in Northumberland. From here we cross the meadows to skirt the disused mineral workings and drift mine that once supplied the local limekilns. From Shield Hill we walk down past Mile-castle Inn back to Mile-castle 42 on the wall, then back to the car park.

All day parking is now £6 but as the walk only takes 2 hours should still only cost £4. However if you park in the little layby next to Hall peat Moss at point 4 its free. Good walk.

Many thanks again to Julia for this enjoyable short walk. Especially good on a sunny day, most of the way was populated by cattle or sheep so not a dog friendly walk. The directions were correct and easy to follow from start to finish and the Milecastle Inn at the end is certainly worth a visit in the summer. Parking was £4.00 for a full day on 13/08/13.
