Day 5 - Hadrians Wall Charity Walk
It is important not to forget why we are walking the wall. We are doing it to raise money for great charities, to support our tourist industry and let everyone see how amazing the Wall truly is.
It is far cry from our Newcastle startpoint when we temporarily took over the Millenium Bridge to advertise the Tynedale Hospice, with the Sage in the background. However, today we will be walking from Humshaugh to Gilsland via the famous Sycamore Gap and its iconic tree.
I have a surgery in a fort along the way, and rumours that we might stop at the legendary Twice Brewed Inn for a pint are grossly exaggerated. Leaving Humshaugh from the village shop at around 9.45 - 10.
