A message from National Trails: Diversions are being put in place in the Carlisle area to ensure that Hadrian’s Wall path National Trail remains a continuous coast to coast route.  Damage to the flood banks between Crosby and Park Broom and between Sheepmount and Engine Lonning require signed diversions that will soon be in place. Rumours that the Trail will be closed this season but that is definitely not the case.  Please visit Trail website news pages, also its twitter address @nationaltrailuk for further information. www.nationaltrail.co.uk/hadrians-wall-path/news/latest-news-carlisle-flood-damage

BEWARE: The Solway and associated rivers are tidal.  Click here to view the current tides.
