Abstract

The Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail, opened in May 2003, and developed by the Countryside Agency (now Natural England), aims to help conserve the Frontiers of the Roman empire: Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, whilst allowing public to enjoy access to the Wall and its setting. The Path has been designed to ensure that it is not intrusive on the surrounding area, and that the structures installed (gates, stiles, signposts, and so on) are in positions tht will not adversely affect the Monument. In the western sector of the route, through Cumbria, west of Carlisle, much of the development work related to an existing Public Right of Way. Most of the route was upgraded to National Trail standard, but one short section, at the western end of Kirkandrews-on-Eden, was not upgraded at that time, and existing structures were left in place. Subsequently, it has become necessary to upgrade certain structures in order to comply, where feasible, with the Disabilities Discrimination Act (1995), it being proposed that all existing stiles should be replaced with gates.
