My boyfriend wasn't actually intending me to walk this way, but it was good fun seeing the gardens from a height whilst admiring the brickwork.

The maps didn't really help find the walls. 15 minutes completes the walk. The mound gives excellent view of the city. Not much of the history of the walls remains.

If this isn’t too late - head for Fenwick’s near the bus station for the main entrance.
