Bardon Mill

Hexham is an historic, bustling town in the heart of the Tyne Valley, named as England's favourite market town by Country Life magazine.The town also boasts of it's is historic Abby, centrepiece of the town built around 675 AD two medieval towers, the 14th century Hexham Old Gaol the oldest purpose-built prison in England and a Moot Hall which dates from the 14th or 15th century.

Bardon Mill is halfway between Newcastle and Carlisle on the A69 road on the north side of the River South Tyne. The land along the river is low lying it quickly rises up to rough upland pasture through which a number of stone crags jut. Amongst this area of farming and common land a number of rare glacial lochs can be seen.

These small lakes, Broomlee Lough, Grindon Lough, Greenlee Lough and Crag Lough are almost the only examples in Northumberland that have been formed by the action of glaciers scouring holes out from the underlying land surface. It is on the crags of Whin Sill, which overlook these lakes that the Hadrian’s Wall runs along one of its most spectacular sections.

Midway point of Hadrian's Wall built by the Romans in AD122 several miles of the wall can be explored On this stretch a number of forts can be seen. These include several small turrets, Milecastle 37 and Milecastle 38. Most important are the remains of the exceptionally well-preserved Roman fort and small town at Housesteads. The Romans knew this site as Vercovivium. It has been the site of much archaeological work and has produced many important archaeological finds including carved stone, pottery and other small finds. The civilian settlement outside the fort is large and even has its own cemetery and temples. The fort and the settlement probably finally fell out of use at the end of the fourth century.

Brownside is a short walk from Roman Vindolanda find one of the North East’s most famous and not to be missed tourist attractions lying in the beautiful landscape of Hadrian's Wall Country. Formerly a key military post on the northern frontier of Britain, Vindolanda is the home of Britain's 'Top Treasure' - the Vindolanda Writing Tablets - and is one Europe's most important Roman archaeological sites, with live excavations taking place every year.

The recently fully refurbished on site museum provides a breathtaking exploration of the Trust's ongoing discoveries and accounts of Roman life. There are no other places on earth where it is possible to experience Roman Britain, Hadrian's Wall and history coming to life before you very eyes all in one space! Come and explore it for yourself and find out why Vindolanda is treasured worldwide.
