Aysgarth Hadrians Wall

Your gateway to Hadrian's Wall and beautiful countryside

Living locally all our lifes we have been guilty, at times, of taking Hadrian's Wall and all its amazing beauty and history for granted.  It's all on our doorstep, an afternoon at Lanercost Priory to gaze at its magestic splender before enjoying tea and cake in the tea room.  We even gained permission for my daughters wedding photo's to be taken in and around The Priory, how lucky we were and what treasured memories they provided.  Just ask when you visit and I'm happy to get out the wedding album to show you. Our girls make us so very proud.  Anyway, my mind wanders with happy memories, now where was I, back to The Wall.

A short trip to Birdoswald Roman Fort and museum provided many a fascinating day out. 

A trip to Newcastle, taking the Military Road with its roller coaster ups and downs, views of The Wall and a quick stop, always, at Sycamore Gap. 

Personally, I am ashamed to say that I have not yet walked all The Wall, just breathtaking sections of it. Although, one day, I will.  It is definately on my bucket list and is highly recommended by family and friends who have.  They have found Brampton a great base from which to explore The Wall, often using the regular connections provided both by Brampton railway station (just a walk up "The Dandy" footpath from your holiday cottage) or joining the AD122 (Roman Wall bus, which runs from Easter to September) via the frequent 685 bus service from Brampton.  These links  both provide easy ways to walk sections of Hadrian's Wall and then catching your train or bus back home or to Brampton or your strategically placed parked car.  Who knows, maybe, I will get myself organised for this summer and give you a cheery wave as we explore The Wall.  Take care and remember to have an adventure.

This section of Hadrian's Wall Map, clearly shows how close we are with Lanercost Priory a very short drive or walk away from your holiday cottage.
