Corbridge is located approximately 4.5 km south of the wall - you can either walk or catch a taxi to Portgate to start your walk.

After Portgate climb to the highpoint of Whittington Fell 268 m and continue to follow the military road down to Brunton, then the Wall, and Chollerford, which is home to a lovely bridge and the extensive Chesters Fort. You will either be staying in Chollerford or Humshaugh where you can get a great local ale and hearty food.

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.
