Hadrian’s Wall is an impressive feat of Roman engineering, standing as a reminder of Ancient Rome’s presence in Britain. It was built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD. Stretching 73 miles from the Irish Sea to the North Sea it is the most impressive Roman remains in Britain. From rugged cliff paths to hidden ruins, Hadrian’s Wall is full of fascinating places to explore. With its rich history and stunning scenery, it’s no wonder it is such a popular tourist destination and photographer’s dream.

The first photograph in this small collection is taken from the remains of milecastle 39 near the village of Once Brewed. The milecastle was built in the 2nd century AD and was first excavated during the early 1900s. It was part of a series of defensive structures built by the Romans in order to protect their territory from invading tribes. The troops were posted on rotation and consequently spent a month at a time on the wall.

This beautiful shot perfectly captures the dramatic Northumbrian countryside and can be purchased from our shop here.

The next 3 pieces of printable photography are taken at Sycamore Gap, which lies to the east of Milecastle 39.

When exploring the beautiful and historic landscape of Hadrian’s Wall, a visit to Sycamore Gap is a must. This iconic site is one of the most photographed spots along Hadrian’s Wall as well as being a popular destination for sightseers. Sycamore Gap is a stunning natural feature. It’s a dramatic dip in the landscape with a beautiful, solitary sycamore tree growing in the middle. It’s perfect spot for a peaceful stroll, with stunning views of the rolling hills and a variety of wildlife.
