Hadrian's Wall Path is the National Trail of some 84 miles, linking Wallsend, near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with Bowness-on-Solway on England's west coast. The Path shadows, for its greater part, the historic line of Hadrian's Wall; it lies within a landscape of dramatic contrasts, starting amid bustling, redeveloped Newcastle, and finishing on the lonely shores of the Solway Firth. This is the complete, official guide for the long-distance walker or the weekend stroller. National Trail Guides are the official guidebooks to the fifteen National Trails in England and Wales and are published in association with Natural England, the official body charged with developing and maintaining the Trails.

Highly useful information from many angles.

We used this book in 2008 when we did our first coast-to-coast walk along Hadrian's wall. We're going back to England this spring for our second trek, in the other direction, so I am excited that this guide has been updated to reflect changes in businesses and services along the way. The detailed descriptions, along with a detailed map for each of 45 small segments, were crucial to us in finding the way. Just as important, the author lists other publications and web-sites for the planner's reference, as well as detailed planning lists: what to bring, arrangements to make, recommendations on places to stay, etc. I will get the updated version, even though my older edition is still quite servicable.
