A pleasant walk along the wall from Gilsland to Newtown.

From Gilsland the path follows a section of consolidated wall to Birdoswald, where it continues up the hill to Banks and through farmland to Newtown. An easy-going section of walking after the rigours of the past few sections. 

There is limited accommodation in Newtown so often overnight accommodated is in the neighbouring town of Brampton.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
