Trip Leader - Deirdre Butler

Join Big Round World in a fantastic hiking adventure combining one of England’s great walks - England's Coast to Coast (C2C) and a visit to Hadrian’s Wall. This adventure provides the opportunity to experience the variety and beauty of the English countryside. From the Irish Sea to the spectacular Lake District - UNESCO World Heritage Site, onto the rugged beauty of the Pennines, "the backbone of England", through the emerald green Yorkshire Dales to the desolate North York Moors and the waves of the North Sea.

Hadrian’s Wall is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving Europe’s largest remaining Roman fortification marking the northernmost limit of the Roman Empire. We will follow along part of its path, contemplating the stones, artifacts, a mile-castle or turret, and the history and humanity that have passed along the way. Our days will be filled with nature and history.

For those arriving early, consider a visit to Carlisle Castle dating from the 11th century for an insight into its turbulent history and how it got the epithet of most besieged castle.
