Hadrian’s Wall was the most heavily fortified border in the Roman Empire, and dates from AD 122, during the rule of the emperor Hadrian. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The best preserved remains of the wall are situated along a conspicuous geological feature known as the Whin Sill, a tabular layer of  igneous dolerite rock in the north east of England. Housesteads Crags, close to the famous Housesteads Roman Fort, look spectacular on a fine winter’s day with snow lying.

The Cheviot (815m), an ancient extinct volcano, is the highest point in the Cheviot Hills and the wild moors and uplands of Northumberland, which continue northwards across the Scottish border. The huge sweeping skies and far horizons, so typical of the Northumberland hills, can be well seen in this view from Battle Hill near Elsdon.
