Northumberland has a wealth of Roman history with it's iconic Hadrian's Wall running from Wallsend in the east through the border into Cumbria and ending on the Solway coast.
The area has ancient forts and museums detailing the time the Romans populated the area bringing their knowledge of building and construction to the wild borderlands of England. The area is vast and unspoilt with the Northern Pennines to the west and the wild Cheviots to the North forming the border into Scotland.
