The path doesn't exactly follow the wall, which is now non-existent in many places. However, the path does take in many historic sights and remains or Roman forts etc.
Day 1 took us from Bowness-On-Solway to Carlisle - taking us through Port Carlisle, Burgh-By-Sands, Beaumont and into Carlisle.
Burgh-By-Sands was a fascinating place - the local church is partly built out of stone from Hadrian's Wall itself, and is the place where Edward I died before being
slung under a car park taken back to London.
Sunset over Bowness-On-Solway the evening before we started.
The beginning of the walk.
Not far to go :-)

First day was 14.5 miles - 69.5 to go!
