The Official Picture Gallery of Hadrian’s Wall.
You have probably heard of Hadrian’s Wall and you may wonder if it is worth visiting. The question is then “What is Hadrian’s Wall like?” There are many excellent websites to visit that will inform you about specific locations and the fabulous events that take place along the Wall.
This website is created by Roger Clegg using his photography to pull it all together and take you on a continuous journey from the estuary of the River Tyne in the east to the marshes of the Solway Firth in the west – the full length of Hadrian’s Wall in pictures in just one website. It is largely devoted to the course of Hadrian’s Wall with a few diversions to places of interest within a short distance of the Wall.
Hadrian’s Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site defining it as a major source of knowledge of Roman life and one of the world’s great historic locations.
Roger’s photography endeavours to capture the sense of a time long gone when life, beliefs, and security were very different. The Wall was the dividing line between the Roman Empire and the Roman perception of the “unpredictable and uncivilised” peoples to the North. The scenery is very varied from well-tended farmland nearer the east and west coast to the upland farms in the middle section of Hadrian’s Wall. This section of the Wall is dominated by the dramatic scenery of the Great Whin Sill Fault with the twists and turns and the ups and downs of its crags.
