The wall spans England from the North East to North West
An extra stamping point has been introduced along the Hadrian's Wall path as part of a scheme to protect the area.
The new point at Housesteads Fort is one of seven along the route, and draws walkers away from a steep slope at Knag Burn to reduce the risk of erosion.
The scheme aims to manage hundreds of walkers during the summer months.
At each point, walkers have a passport stamped to prove they have walked the trail.
Once they have all seven stamps they are eligible for a completion badge and certificate.
David McGlade, Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail manager for Hadrian's Wall Heritage Ltd, said: "We have introduced a new seventh stamping point to help reduce pressure on a steep slope.
"We are trying to intervene there before it becomes a major problem."
The new stamping point is situated on an outside wall beside the entrance to the English Heritage museum at Housesteads.
New signs have also been introduced to discourage people from walking on the monument.
The passports can only be stamped between 1 May and 31 October each year.
This attracts walkers towards the drier months of the year when the soils are drier and capable of withstanding more wear and tear, giving the grass more time to recover over the winter months.
The trail can attract up to 10,000 walkers a year.
The wall was built in 122 AD on the orders of the Roman emperor Hadrian, and connects Wallsend, near Newcastle, with Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast.
