Join us our our guided walk to Sewingshields and Haughton Green.

Our walk skirts Housesteads Fort before following the Roman Wall eastwards over Sewingshields Crag with excellent views of the surrounding area.

We then loop round to the north through a landscape rich in archaeology ranging from the bronze age through medieval fish ponds to nineteenth-century agriculture before picking up the Pennine Way for the return to Housesteads.

Discover the best routes in the Northumberland National Park on our Guided Walks. Get outside, enjoy your time walking and leave the planning and navigation to us; it’s what we’re best at.

Nobody knows the best places to walk in the National Park like our volunteers so you’ll never be short of local history, stories, features and viewpoints.
