The Hadrian's Wall Path follows a riverside route along the Tyne gives way to arable farmland above Tynedale. This opens out to a rough grazing upland section dominated by the Whin Sill escarpment. It then gradually descends to the richer pastures of Cumbria and finally the open salt marsh of the Solway Estuary. Highlights on the route include the Roman Forts of Segedunum (Wallsend), Chesters, Housesteads and Birdoswald. Other highlights include the River Tyne bridges; Whin Sill escarpment and Solway salt marshes. (Extract adapted from Hadrian's Wall)
