History

Discover history 

From a Roman leader to a local antiquarian - Hadrian's Wall has certainly seen some things during its time and can now include being the star of a few Hollywood movies, such as Macbeth, and TV series Vera. There's many reasons why this is a World Heritage Site and why the National Trust works hard to conserve it.

There's lots to be getting on with across the Tyne Valley, from maintaining footpaths to coppicing, fencing and dry stone walling plus hedge laying. If you're looking to get stuck in to practical jobs with the ranger team, look no further.
