Here at Hadrian's Wall Country Group, which also includes Allen Banks (41 hectare woodland) and Staward Gorge plus Bellister Castle and Estate, we're dedicated to maintaining our sites for people to enjoy.
With the help of the wonderful volunteers, our five rangers manage six miles of Hadrian's Wall, conducting regular surveys to help monitor the wildlife, developing exciting projects and restoring essential parts of the sites, all while fitting in the other areas of the Group too.
We've been working with father and son team Ian and Tom Hopper for a number of years now.
They are fantastic and help to deliver adventure activities such as Snowshoeing, Climbing at Crag Lough, Underground Adventure at Nenthead and Sleeping under the stars weekend at Allen Banks.
Northumberland National Park
We work closely with Northumberland National Park, which covers an area of 1049km, or 405 square miles.
The area includes walking paths, listed buildings, National Nature Rserves, Special Ancient Monuments and more.
In terms of partnership Housesteads Roman Fort is a little different.
We're a blended site you see, so although National Trust owns Housesteads Fort, English Heritgae manage it and we work closely with them to ensure that the history of this special place is protected and that any visitor has a great time!
