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.

Helping to manage a World Heritage Site 

With so much going on across various sites along the Tyne Valley, we're always looking for a few extra pair of hands. So, if you're free on a Thursday and up for some graft and quite enjoy getting stuck in, there's lots to be done from maintaining footpaths to coppicing, fencing and dry stone walling plus hedge laying. Phew.
