"Once was military, now is tourist attraction."
"Brilliant that we have the opportunity to walk this wonderful wall."
"This photo is interesting because I didn't realise the wall is still so high in places."
"I also photographed this place because you can imagine how high the wall really was."
"Here the wall looks almost artificial due to the constant size and shape of the blocks."
"(i) poor snapshot with people walking out of view, (ii) excellent representation of the reality of walking the Hadrian's Wall Trail."
"Sums up the sheer achievement of the Romans in building the Wall - the beauty of the stonework. I don't care for the image of the walkers."
