St. Oswald’s Way Countryside Short Walks HEAVENFIELD & WALL
The village of Wall and the nearby site of Heavenfield lie in the North Tyne valley, in beautiful countryside close to Hadrian’s Wall (from where the village gets its name). The rolling fells and crags give the area quite a rugged feel, in keeping with its military and industrial past.
This part of Tyneside has some beautiful countryside and views, as well as many remains of the Roman occupation. Heavenfield is an important religious site, set in a lovely landscape next to Hadrian’s Wall.
Distance: 3.5 miles (5.5 km)
