Our walk of just over 6 miles runs from Cawfield to Housesteads Visitor Centre and is best completed as an A to B walk using AD122 Hadrian's Wall Country Bus which this year (2015) runs from 3rd April to 27th September. Choose a fine day and you will be rewarded with unrivalled views as you walk alongside the most dramatic part of the wall mostly on the National Trust Hadrian's Wall Estate.
We recommend you park at Housesteads Visitor Centre where there is good parking (£4 per day Northumberland National Park) and conveniently the AD 122 bus stops here alight at the Milecastle Inn (4 stops) and be careful as you cross the B6318 known locally as the Military Way and follow the signs for Cawfield where we start our way and pick up Hadrian's Wall footpath and essentially follow it over Steel Rigg to Sycamore Gap and on to Housesteads Fort.

Alternatives to using the bus are the use of two cars or to walk both ways.
