It being a Bank Holiday weekend and having a little spare time I drove out to Gilsland which is situated on Hadrian’s Wall. Thanks to the Romans) The route of this wall goes from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway; from the east coast to the west. Today I walked about three miles along the route. I had the other 69 miles few years ago with my two cousins.
The weather was suited to the three miles and it was raining by the time I finished. Afterwards I visited the House of Meg cafe in Gilsland, a place with poetic connections. I also located the village Hall where I will be speaking in two months time.
