Hadrian's Wall Part 3 - Lanercost Priory to Walltown Army Museum Walk


We leave Lanercost Priory to rejoin the wall and walk along to Banks. From here on, we see many pieces of wall remains, turrets and milecastles, as we make our way to Birdoswald Roman Fort. 

After a chance to look around it, we carry on to see the remains of Willowford Roman Bridge and Milecastle before reaching Gilsland. The next stretch shows the visible ditches alongside the wall as we walk to Thirlwall Castle, the remains of the 14th Century moated castle built with stone from the wall. 

From here a steady climb takes us up to Walltown Army Museum, with some lovely views looking back along the route.
