This is the view of Hadrian's Wall fron the car park at Steel Rigg. The wall follows the line of natural escarpments wherever possible - you should just be able to see the wall continuing at the top of the cliffs in the photo. The wall would originally have been 2 or 3 times taller than the shoulder high remnants in my photo.
For those of you who may not of heard of Hadrian's Wall, it is an 80 mile long stone and turf wall built about 2000 years ago by the Roman Empire across the neck of Northern England and marked the boundary of the empire. It was built to stop raids from the unconquered tribes further north.
