Roman Heritage Way

Northumberland, Tyne and Wear

This path is described as a walk along the Northern Roman Frontiers of 1st to 2nd Century Britain and it offers a variety of interest and terrain. In addition to the Roman Connection there are many parts with extensive historical interest spanning the centuries with many signs of the Reiving history that dominated so many part of this countryside. The walk includes City/urban sections, river sections, moor land, forestry and open hill top walks.

Most of the route is in northern England with around a fifth in the Scottish Borders. It makes use of St Cuthbert's Way, the Roman Road of Dere Street, the Pennine Way and Hadrian's Way Path. The route is in the form of an inverted "T" and offers two main options:

1. Wallsend to Melrose (Segedunum Fort to Trimontium Museum) via the eastern Hadrian's Wall Path, Housesteads, Bellingham, Byrness and Dere Street (103 miles). The start and finish details refer only to this option.

2. Bowness on Solway (Maia Fort to Trimontium Museum) via the western Hadrian's Wall Path, Housesteads, Bellingham, Byrness and Dere Street (100 miles).

There is a grid reference list available from SCSupport that independent walkers can use with guidebooks for the main paths.
