Photographer's Note

A steep section of Hadrian's Wall looking back from Steel Rigg to the Wall snaking its way over the rocky cliffs above Crag Lough. The Wall extends across the width of present day England and is comprised of stone and turf. It was built to ward off the Picts to the north and to define the limits of the Roman Empire, being completed in 130 A.D. The Wall is 73.5 miles(117 km) long. There exist the remains of some of the larger forts and outposts, such as nearby Vercovicium (Housesteads), along the walking route, together with various information centres. The wind often blows here piteously.
