... the high point of a recent trip to England, and my husband and I are most grateful to him for a fascinating day spent delving into the artifacts and lives of ancient Romans stationed at the edge of their Empire.

#2 of 2 things to do in Henshaw
There is short walk of a couple of 100 metres or so on a gravelled path from the car park on fairly level ground to a viewpoint to see the crags, lake and the Wall climbing and falling along the escarpment.
Within a very short stroll there is a section of the wall with some stunning scenery - it is a bit of a climb but well worth the effort.

... over a few ups and down paths and some steps, takes around 2 hours round trip depending on how many stops you take, plenty of seats along the way and you are rewarded with a beautiful waterfall at the end
This is a lovely walk - but make sure you keep going right to the end of the path - there are a couple of smaller waterfalls on the way - but you need to go right to the end for the big waterfall.

Great place to visit with a well laid out archeological site, small museum and a superb starting place for some great walks along the wall.
