The Hadrian’s Wall Path is a footpath in the north of England. It runs for 84 miles from Wallsend on the east coast of England to Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast. The reason for the wall's construction is disputed. Many believe it was to keep the barbarians and the Romans separate. Others surmise that it was an act of defense before expansion.
