Tourism and conservation working in partnership.

Adopt a stone

Hadrian's Wall ranks alongside the Pyramids and Machu Picchu in its international importance. It is also an iconic symbol of our country while remaining a special place for the people who live and work close to it.

Protecting the archaeology, maintaining the landscape, and coordinating the management of access, communications, interpretation and the environment is an exciting and expensive task in a challenging financial environment. 

We are delighted to be able to help by raising money through our Adopt a Stone website. This interactive website allows anyone to make a donation buy purchasing a virtual stone, or even a soldier! The donations will be used to provide grants for projects which conserve, protect, maintain and raise public awareness of Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site and Hadrian’s Wall Country.
