Books Info:

Hadrian's Wall Path free pdf A World Heritage Site, Hadrian's Wall is a famous frontier, combining striking natural landscapes with monumental remains. Ten years ago Mark Richards created a beautifully hand-scribed guide to a coast-to-coast Wall Walk. Since then the Countryside Agency has, through careful negotiation, made this a reality in a new National Trail. The revelation of this new route is how brilliantly it brings the whole Roman Frontier beneath one's feet. This guide provides full details and instructions for walking the wall in both directions. Richly documented with colour images, it is accompanied by detailed maps, photographs and panoramic perspectives. In this new guide Mark shares his evident passion for the countryside and landmarks of the Tyne/Solway corridor.

About Helen Richards

Mark Richards' transition from full-time farmer to full-time outdoor writer has been a gradual one. In 1973, with the direct encouragement of Alfred Wainwright, he wrote his first walking guide to the Cotswold Way. Since then he has indulged his pleasure in exploring rural Britain by creating a range of walking guides. In 1980 he began his three-part guide to the Peak District for Cicerone Press, and in 1987, with Chris Wright, wrote a guide to walking around the former county of Westmorland. This book sowed the seeds of a dream, to be fulfilled some 14 years later, when he and his wife moved to Cumbria. Here he developed a passion for the finest of all walking landscapes, held within and around this marvellous county. Now, living in what was once the Barony of Gilsland, Mark is close to Hadrian's Wall, enabling him to renew a fascination first kindled when he prepared a guide to walking the Wall in 1993.
