Northumberland Wildlife Trust trustee Ian Jackson has been enthralling wildlife lovers during lockdown with his virtual tours.

Ian, who leads natural history walks in the north of England, combined his lifelong interest in the wall forged during school history and Latin trips with a desire to help people during the lockdown affected by the ban on hiking, by creating the virtual wall tour.

The special character of the Hadrian’s Wall landscape is the ridges and troughs that can be seen so well when driving along the Military Road.

Hadrian's Wall.

The hardest of all the rocks is the Whin Sill which is world famous amongst geologists and the home of extremely rare grasslands which Northumberland Wildlife Trust works tirelessly to preserve.

Ian hopes that once people are out of lockdown, they will visit Hadrian’s Wall to experience its outstanding natural landscape.
