    • The highlights of hiking the Hadrian’s Wall Path

      At the end of May 2022, we spent a week hiking the entire Hadrian’s Wall path in the North of England. This 117km (73 miles) path runs across northern England, from Wallsend in the East to Bowness-on-Solway on the West coast. The official path opened in 2003 and is very well maintained, and sign posted, […]

We spent our weekends recovering from […]

    • Dog walking in Holkham and Wells, Norfolk
