A great starting point for Hadrian's Wall
A great starting point to walk to Milecastle 42 and a fine stretch of Hadrian’s Wall.
The second legion built this to protect the weak spot of Hole Gap. It hangs on to the edge of the sheer crags. You can also see the bedrock of the Whin Sill in Cawfields itself, as it used to be a quarry. For information more, click here.
A car parking charge of £4 per vehicle, per day, applies but tickets are transferable between Northumberland National Park car parks along the route of Hadrian’s Wall.
