Hadrian's Wall, a Roman-era fortification spanning the width of northern England, was lit up from end-to-end by volunteers carrying flaming torches Saturday.

As night fell, 500 gas flames were lit at 250-metre intervals for 84 miles (135 kilometres) from Wallsend in northeast England to Bowness-on-Solway in the northwest.

This created a coast-to-coast line of light along the route of a path which runs next to the wall.

Hadrian's Wall was built in 122 AD on the orders of the Roman emperor Hadrian to mark his empire's northern frontier. It is the largest monument from the ancient era in northern Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
