Hadrian’s Wall Pilgrims’ Way – 2 days, 23 miles – Housesteads to Corbridge – Start on a wild hilltop at Housesteads Roman Fort, where ‘Hooded Gods’ were worshipped. Follow the Hadrian’s Wall Path and take in its astonishing views before coming to Carrawburgh Roman Fort, adjacent to the Temple dedicated to the god of light, Mithras. Make a wish here by leaving coins on the altars, and then walk on to Chesters Roman Fort to discover artefacts from the well of the water nymph Coventina. From there you come to St Oswald’s Church, Heavenfield, on the site where Oswald erected a wooden cross at which he knelt before the Battle of Heavenfield. Next is the 7th-century Hexham Abbey, before reaching your destination of Corbridge, with its 7th-century church and Roman Town.
