Doris Hancock completes Hadrian's Wall Walk
Hadrian's Wall is developing a partnership with The Great Wall, both beauty spots will feature in a photography exhibition in London.
Sixty beacons were ignited along Hadrian's Wall last night to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
A team of police officers has set off on a gruelling 84 mile walk in memory of a colleagues son. 3-year-old Scott Lisle is the only boy in the world to have died from a rare neurological disorder, called Rett Syndrome.
Today, his father and seven of his colleagues set off from Bowness-on-Solway for the Hadrian's Coast to Coast Walk. They hope to arrive at Segendum on Monday. Jenny Longden met up with them and sent this report.
The Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site has received a £537,185 funding boost to help protect it for future generations.
The money's being provided by the SITA Trust. After detailed surveys in May specialist stone masons will begin the conservation work on a threatened central section of the Wall.
The full project is expected to be completed in August 2013.
