I’m pleased to say we successfully completed our challenge.

Newcastle







We reached the sea at Tynemouth on Tuesday, the final point in our 106-mile walk along Hadrian’s Wall from one side of the country to the other.








We enjoyed staying in varied accommodation, including (former) chicken shed, pig sty and cow barn.








In total we walked over 275,000 steps across the 9 days, fuelled by one or two cafe stops! 🙂








In doing so, we have raised over £2000 for AFC, a fantastic result.

 

Thanks for all your support

Mark and Paul
