  • Overview

    All the mapping you need to complete the 84 mile (135km) Hadrian’s Wall Path, from Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria to Wallsend, Newcastle. One of the UK’s most visited national trails, it typically takes a week to walk, and is suitable for walkers and trekkers at all levels of experience.

    This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the National Trail, along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend. It can be used when walking the trail west–east or east–west, and includes an extension to the east coast at South Shields. It is conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or top of a rucksack and comes in a clear PVC sleeve.

    An accompanying Cicerone guidebook - Hadrian's Wall Path - describes the full route in both directions with lots of other practical and historical information, for those who prefer a written guide. NOTE: The accompanying guidebook includes a copy of this map booklet.
