Before You Go

The length of Wall at Winshields is the highest point on Hadrian's Wall, in rugged country with spectacular views.

Before You Go

Access: The site can only be accessed by foot. The route is exposed to the elements, and liable to be muddy in wet and wintry weather.

Parking: There is parking available (not managed by English Heritage) in Once Brewed, at the Northumberland National Parks visitor centre.

Drone flying: English Heritage does not permit drone flying from or over sites in our care, except by contractors or partners undertaking flights for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and permissions, and are operating under controlled conditions. Please see our drone filming guidelines for more details, or email our Filming team.

Plan a Great Day Out

Just over five miles from Winshields is Housesteads Roman Fort, where you can experience English Heritage's flagship attraction on Hadrian's Wall. Here you can stand on the edge of the Roman Empire and marvel at the 360 degree views.

For an extended day out, try the Housesteads trail that includes Winshields along with Walltown Crags, Cawfields Roman Wall and Sewingshields Wall.
