Review by TheWasp
A "coffee table" book featuring lovely pictures of Hadrian's Wall and surrounding countryside, which follows the 117km walking route from Bowness-On-Solway in the West to Wallsend in the East.The accompanying text provides a condensed, though informative, overview of the history of the wall, and the efforts that have been made to preserve and restore this iconic landmark.
