wednesday was unexpectedly sunny (again) which was a bonus. A much easier day of walking, only 5 miles, which improved the mood of the teen. He was getting quite into the spirit of things actually, taking photographs of the scenery – and wait for it- when we had a boring bit of road to walk along , singing songs!!!!
here are a few snaps of the day. (Steel rig to housesteads to vindolanda)
A passer by kindly took a picture of the threee of us – had to cut his thumb off ! ( the picture)
The tree is in ‘sycamore gap’ and famous because they shot the opening scenes of ‘Robin Hood prince of thieves’ here. It’s only 300 miles to Sherwood Forest!
Roman remains at housesteads
The staineway – an original roman road that ran parallel to Hadrians wall across the width of England.
Vindolanda has an amazing collection of artefacts – including hundreds of shoes! Definitely worth a visit. The sophistication of clothes, jewellery and pottery suggest that people haven’t changed much in 2000 years!
