Walking Hadrians Wall
Q. We are doing a charity walk of Hadrian's Wall inSept 2009. We would very much like to hear from anyone who has walked the wall with advice on a kit list. We will be camping all the way.

A. The Hadrian's Wall Path is a 130km (81 miles) linear footpath connecting Wallsend in Tyne and Wear, England with Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria, England.
It is waymarked by a National Trail Acorn.
For some walks that include part of The Hadrian's Wall Path see Walks that include The Hadrian's Wall Path.
Hope this helps
A. I have just finished the Hadrians Wall walk and some of the best advise to give would be
a. get one of the companys available to take your bags during the day and just carry day packs with wet weather gear, hydration packs and emergency supplys.
b. get all 4 Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps and take a good mapreader, the path is well marked but you can easy miss a sign and march of the wrong way for a mile or two.
c. book your accommodation well in advance.
I hope these pointers help.
