Story

A team from Murton Park, home of the Yorkshire Museum of Farming near York, are set to walk the length of Hadrian’s Wall dressed in Roman period military clothing (carrying a weight of approx. 25-30kg each, inc. Roman weaponry and kit) to raise money for the maintenance of the Living History sites at the park.

They will also be raising money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a charity that is close to the hearts of many members of the team.

The Yorkshire Museum of Farming Ltd is a registered charity (No.510900) and for over 40 years it's been the charity's mission to collect and preserve Yorkshire’s farming history. It also houses four reconstructed historical sites - a Roman fort, a Viking Village, Stone Age round houses and a WW2 evacuee centre - which supports the education of Yorkshire's past. This is delivered through a KS2 education programme.

The Hadrian’s Wall team will be led by Dan Coultas from the Murton Park Living History team. He will walk alongside his colleagues Chris Bray and Andrew Derych and his Dad, Neil Coultas, who came up with the idea for the walk. They will walk the length of Hadrian’s wall from Sunday 21st July - Saturday 27th July stopping at key Roman points of interest along the way.

On Saturday 27th July, they will walk through Newcastle City Centre before finishing the walk in Wallsend where each walker will be paid 10 denarius (Roman money) in a traditional Roman pay parade.

You will be able to follow their journey on Murton Park’s Facebook and Instagram pages where the walkers will be giving daily updates.
