Exploring Sycamore Gap in Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland!

The lovely Julia has always wanted to go to see the amazing Sycamore Gap in Northumberland, so as part of our trip ‘Up North’ we decided to take Robert Croser and Cheryl Craggs along with us to Hadrian’s Wall to find it.

The Sycamore Gap Tree is by Hadrian’s Wall, between Milecastle 39 and Crag Lough, about 2 miles west of Housesteads Roman Fort in Northumberland. This section of the wall follows the edge of a cliff – an outcrop of the Whin Sill – and several sharp dips in it caused by melting glacial waters. The tree stands within one of these dips with the cliff and wall rising dramatically either side of it. The wall and adjacent land, including the site of the tree, are owned by the National Trust.
