Sycamore Gap, Hadrian's Wall

.

.
This tree is located on Hadrian's Wall , a World Heritage Site. The Wall's construction began in AD122 under the instructions of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. It stretched for 74 miles across the North of England from Segedunum ( Wallsend) on the River Tyne in the east to Bowness and Maryport, in the west. It marked the point furthest north in the Roman Empire.
