Hadrian's Wall: North and South

For our anniversary, my wife and I went into Northumberland. We went to a few places - the grounds of Slaley Hall, a De Vere hotel with two 18 hole golf courses and it's own Japanese garden - it was beautiful, despite the fact that it was chucking it down with rain.

We also went to Allen Banks and Staward's Gorge, photo's from which I have posted earlier in this blog. From there, we headed North to Hadrian's Wall and Housesteads Fort. It was a bit of a disappointment really - and the weather was naff to say the least.

But we paid the money, and walked into the little museum/information centre to learn all about why the wall was built, and then moseyed on out to the ruins of the fort. There was just little low walls running everywhere, which had been marked as sleeping quarters, dining area, galley, etc etc.

Then this little scene caught my eye - it's the view North and the view South running along one of the boundaries of the Fort, and, crouching down, I pulled out the N95, and snapped these two shots.
