Wat je gaat doen

We'll meet up in the most dramatic, central, section of Hadrian's Wall and hike along and then return north of this ancient frontier of the Roman Empire for about 7 kilometres (4 miles). [A longer, full day, hike is also available - see my other Experience]. We'll explore the natural and historic landscape of Wall country, learn how to interpret the shape of the countryside and gain insight into the processes and people that shaped it. You'll acquire basic skills that will help you begin to satisfy your curiosity about the natural landscapes all around us. The countryside around you will never seem the same again. The weather can be changeable and picking good weather days well in advance can be a challenge; so days additional to the calendar are available, please contact me to arrange a date. Pick up from local accommodation and stations possible.

I’m a northern boy, raised in Cumbria, did my degree in Newcastle. With interludes abroad and across the rest of the UK, I’ve been hiking, running and biking across the north of England for more than 50 years. So I’m local but also a professional geologist and trained Hadrian’s Wall guide. I surveyed parts of Northumberland and Cumbria for the British Geological Survey and retired as a director. I was a science consultant to the BBC for 6 landscape documentaries. Today I am a trustee of 3 northern environmental charities and lead hikes in Northumberland and the mountains of the Lake District.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Thousands of people visit The Wall every year - I want to give small groups of people the opportunity to take a deeper and more insightful look. See the Wall from viewpoints few venture to, look at the whole landscape through a professional geologist's eyes. Walk and talk about how and why Hadrian built his Wall and explore the rich history of this countryside before and after the Roman Empire. And what its like being part of this community today

We had such a great time on the tour today! Ian was so welcoming and personable, he took time to get to know us, made the tour relevant to us all and made us feel like we could ask loads of questions (which we did and Ian took time to answer). Ian has an incredible knowledge and passion for the wall, the geology, the social history and other history in the area. Was lovely to do the tour with a nice group of people.

Ian is absolutely brilliant and we couldn’t recommend him more. He has a great understanding of both the geology and history of the area and time flew as we were on our walk. Book him now!

Ian is such a great companion and guide! We heard so many interesting facts, history and fun anecdotes along the way. We walked on routes we otherwise wouldn’t have explored. I would highly recommend this tour if you’re nearby. We absolutely loved it!!

What a great way to explore the wall! We had 3 gerenations with us and each one really enjoyed the experience. Ian was very knowledgable and able to pitch his stories across the generations. I would recommend this trip to everyone as without Ian I fear it may have been just a wall!

Amazing experience and one that my wife and I will never forget. We feel extremely fortunate to have taken this tour with Ian. As a trained geologist he is imminently qualified to conduct tours of this area. We felt a real connection with him as we got to know him on the hike. Ian was very solicitous of my wife and a true English gentleman. I would also like to give a “shout out” to Karen at the Sill Landscape Visitor Center who helped us with a problem we had.
