Leave Brampton behind and cycle north passing Banks and Birdoswald where you'll see some well-preserved sections of Hadrian’s Wall. A long descent into Haltwhistle follows before coming off the cycleway at the summit of Smith's Shield. Tonight sample a local beer in Once Brewed at the Twice Brewed Inn!

Author’s recommendation

It is well worth diverting from the main route at Banks and Birdoswald to visit well-preserved sections of the wall.
