There's a great stretch of Hadrian's Wall not too far from Tottergill Farm Cottages, located just on the other side of Brampton at Gilsland. You'll find a small visitor & information centre which includes a model of Hadrian's wall at full hight and some fascinating to ruins to look around. Whether you choose to pay to enter the visitor centre or not, there is a very good walk along Hadrian's Wall that you can take. The path follows the wall along, over the beautiful River Irthing and to some more ruins on the other side of the River. Past these ruins, the wall continues along up a steep banking where the path continues along side. Looking back from this vantage point gives a brilliant view back along the wall. A great trip for all the family - although the path is quite steep in sections - highly reccommended.
