Sycamore Gap


Sycamore Gap near Steel Rigg, Hadrians Wall in Northumberland. The famous tree was used as a film set for the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Hadrian's Wall is a stone and turf fortification built by Hadrian in the 2nd century; it marked the northern boundary of the Roman Empire in Britain
The Hadrians Wall path is an 84 mile National Trail that takes walkers along the riverside route in Tyneside, through farmland in Tynedale and the grazing upland section dominated by the Whin Sill enscarpment. It then gradually descends to the rich pastures of Cumbria and finally the salt marsh of the Solway Estuary
