Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail 10th Anniversary

20th August 2013

2013 is the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail's 10th birthday and there are celebration events across Hadrian's Wall Country.

Linda Tuttiett, chief executive of the Hadrian's Wall Trust which manages the trail said: "People from around the world want to walk the trail for many different reasons. There's the history and landscape, personal challenge and achievement, and to raise money for many different charities. 

"No other trail provides for such extensive access to an archaeologically sensitive landscape. By actively managing the trail we can look forward to welcoming many thousands more people whilst still protecting the site for future generations."

Trail activities to mark the 10th anniversary have been funded by Defra's Rural Development Programme for England and by Natural England. The celebration takes place from May to September 2013 and includes events organised by many different organisations and groups across the whole of Hadrian’s Wall Country.
