Hadrian’s Wall

This wall, as some of you will know, goes from the east coast of northern England to the west. Built by the Romans, it was either meant to keep the Scots in, or the English out! Very little is left now but the route can still be followed.

As I was travelling from Carlisle to Newcastle last week I drove along what is known as the Military Road. A few years ago I walked along the wall (84 miles) with my two cousins, taking about nine days. We weren’t in a rush.

I also plan this year or next to fly over it in a helicopter. I love this part of history and marvel that the Romans were here and had such an influence on us, so long ago.
