The area around Hadrian's Wall has been made a fair trade zone, meaning those who like to go walking
in the area can enjoy buying ethically-traded goods.
Fair Trade Hadrian's Wall - a campaign launched in 2008 - has now succeeded in getting the towns close to the famous Roman frontier to sign up to promote such goods.
An emphasis will also be placed on offering plenty of locally-sourced produce, with the wall running through agricultural areas.
Such a development may allow those putting on their walking boots
and walking along the route of the wall to enjoy a local roast lamb in the evening, after eating fairly traded bananas and chocolate to give themselves energy for their exertions during the day.
Those wanting to walk the full 84-mile length of the wall can do so by following the National Trail that now exists, which is signposted all along the route from Wallsend in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in the west.
