Walking the Wall
State of the art display in York
Hadrian's Wall

Every year, thousands of keen walkers trek across Britain next to one of the world's most important Roman constructions.

Suzanne Worthington joined the BBC Radio Cumbria team to explore the Cumbrian end of the Wall.

Every afternoon during the week Monday 15 - Friday 19 September 2003, I walked a section of the Wall from the western end at Bowness-on-Solway to Birdoswald with a team of colleagues from BBC Radio Cumbria.

During the walk, I met walkers from all over Britain and beyond who had come to our area to walk the Hadrian's Wall Path.

Also walking the Wall was presenter Paul Braithwaite, BBC Radio Cumbria presenter, who broadcast live from locations along the Wall every morning.
