A new landscape discovery centre is to be established by Hadrian's Wall, the Northumberland National Park Authority and Youth Hostels Association have revealed.
The Sill will be a place of learning about the environment and heritage of the area, with the park authority declaring it to be a great addition to existing attractions around the wall like Vindolanda and Housesteads Fort.
People who like to go walking
in the area might enjoy the feature, not least those taking on the full length of the Hadrian's Wall Path.
Lottery funding if £399,200 has been secured to get the project started, with another £6.3 million to follow later on.
One of its aims will be to get the public more interested in environmental and conservation issues.
National park authority chairman Tony Gates said: "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture the public's imagination and fully engage people in shaping our future use of land."
The Hadrian's Wall Path stretches 84 miles in total from Tyneside to the Solway Firth.
