Hadrian’s Wall Walk

This most ancient of charity treks takes you from Lanercost Priory to Brocolitia, encompassing some fascinating ruins. It is the most remarkable Roman monument in the country, and quite unique throughout the former Empire. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site – which cuts through Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall attracts trekkers from all over, as it offers great challenging walks, filled with a stunning backdrop and history.


Lakes 4 Peaks Challenge 

This stunning challenge takes place in one of the UK’s most beautiful locations. Trek and summit the four highest peaks of The Lake District – Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. The trekking begins at Seathwaite, from where you tackle Scafell and Scafell Pike via the Corridor route.  Stamina and determination are a must on this fantastic but strenuous challenge; although it involves some tough trekking, the stunning views of the Lake District will be with you all the way and the close proximity of the four peaks means that it’s possible to do all this in one great weekend!
