The Great Wall of Britain
A walk along Hadrian's Wall
Whether you have walked the Wall, are planning to, are interested in the history of northern England, or simply like to sit down with a book that will leave you smiling and crying at the same time, this is an entertaining account of 2,000 years of history.
Pakced with accessible stories and histories, whether picked up from archaeology or through more dubious drunken chats in the local pubs, there are encounters with music-loving cows, amorous and less-amorous dogs, other walkers, imaginary B&B owners, Roman soldiers, foot and mouth disease, the Border Reivers and many more.
