From Heddon you join the Roman Road and begin to see ever more frequent signs of the  wall itself. After a couple of miles you pass the Vindolanda Roman Fort and then negotiate a few small climbs. Harlow hill is a small hamlet and two miles further on is East Wallhouses - home to Robin Hood’s Inn, a fantastic old pub, which you may like to try for dinner.

If you are overnighting in East Wallhouses you will likely be stayin in Wylam.  Wait in East Wallhouses for a pre-arranged pick-up if you have one.

Turn-by-turn directions

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.

Vindolanda is not in this section of the trail as is noted. The fort (called Rudchester on map) is called Vindobala.
