The route continues undulating across country. After crossing the very attractive Cam beck, you briefly join the road at Newtown Village. Here you are following the line of Hadrian's Wall via Old Wall, Blea Head and Wallhead farms, before detouring on a little “sandy lane” that takes you down to The Stanegate.
Next you come to Rickerby and finally cross the River Eden, meander towards Stanwix, then up into Carlisle.
This is a very interesting historical city, with a castle started by Henry I, extensive wall and other Roman remains, and the cathedral. Beer fans will not want to miss out a couple of ales, as this is the centre for the Theakstone’s Brewery.
Accommodation: small 3 star AA graded hotel built in the 1850’s. It has its foundations literally on Hadrians Wall!
