The Romans constructed Hadrian's Wall in the 2nd century between what is now Wallsend in the east and Bowness-on-Solway in the west, a distance of some 117.5 km (73 miles). In the central sector advantage was taken of the presence of the whin sill, a dolorite cliff, the Wall being sited on its top. Seen here is the Wall on Cuddy's Crags, not too far west from Housesteads Roman Fort.
The cliffs are popular with rock-climbers.
