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.
Cawfields features public toilets including changing facilities, an information point and a sheltered picnic area.
