Adopt a stone and help save Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian’s Wall Trust has launched a new fundraising campaign to ensure the World Heritage Site survives for future generations.

People are invited to attach their names to a stone, not on Hadrian’s Wall itself but on a virtual realisation of it on the website adoptastone.co.uk.

Linda Tuttiett, Hadrian’s Wall Trust chief executive, explained: “The budget for the maintenance of the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail suffered a major reduction and now needs additional support. We are determined to maintain the trail in excellent condition.” The trust is aiming to raise £20m to secure the future of the wall over the next 10 years.

I have myself adopted a virtual stone near Housesteads, my favorite place along Hadrian’s Wall.
