    Final Preparations.

    With only a week to go I thought I'd try out our first blog entry! Just a boring entry about preparation. Anyway to ensure we can be self sufficient for at least 48 hours, as in the fridge, lights and water pump keep running without electric hookup. I replaced our faulty 105ah leisure battery with a larger 125ah one. After all no one should have warm beer on holiday.

    ... us off. There was no where to hide! Right in the face!! As it was just about opening time at the Farmers Arms and we were very wet and cold we made an unscheduled stop there for lunch. Hot vegetable soup, a ploughman's, apple crumble with lashings of piping hot custard, hot tea and coffee and those nasty drivers were almost forgiven. The afternoon got slightly better. The rain stopped at least. We walked around ...

    We had a lovely 21 km walk today across gently rolling fields into Richmond. There was little hard climbing or struggling through muddy bogs. The route took us out of the Pennines, still following the Swale river, past the tiny villages of Marrick and Marske before descending into the castle town in the early afternoon. Further east we could make out the flatlands we will be covering in the next few days and beyond them the high grounds of the North Yorkshire ...

    Heavy rain overnight and into the morning. It had stopped by the time we wanted to leave but it stayed overcast and dull all morning. First stop was to Hexham abbey, founded in the 600s and added to in the 1100s and early 1900s. The crypt is still the original dating from the 600s, with tunnels in from the sides for people to enter and leave. Then on ...

    Hadrian's wall

    On to two Roman forts, vindolanda, just off Hadrian's wall, and housesteads, actually on the wall. Vindolanda is a wonderful site of a classic Roman fort with an adjoining civilian settlement. There is also an exceptionally good museum. Excavations continue at two locations at the site, one in the fort and one in the village. Just a few miles away and up on the wall itself is housesteads, another classical Roman fort, ie the same layout as vindolanda, built as one of the main wall ...
