    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.

    Hexham and more wall

    ... the best we have seen, with slit windows and underfloor air ducts to help keep the grain fresh. Chesters fort is right on the wall and is unusual for being actually split by the wall with half of the fort on each side. It also was placed to protect where the wall crossed the north Tyne river on a bridge. On the way back lynette's car went over 100,000 ...

    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 ...

    ... the stone ceiling ribs, from which the gothic pointed arches developed. It's a huge building, and very, very solid; the central pillars have a 6.6 metre circumference. For me, it doesn't have the soaring elegance of the thinner pillared later buildings, it seems very heavyweight, even brutal. It is the resting place for the remains of St. Cuthbert, one of the founders of English Christianity, and also the Venerable Bede, a monk who wrote the first history of England in about 700 ...

    Newcastle to whitby

    ... we enjoyed some B roads we wouldn't otherwise have seen. Coast road isn't that close to the coast but enjoyable drive anyway. Got to Whitby early afternoon, found our b&b. Met by Phil and warmly welcomed. Helen working. Can park the car in the street, no restrictions so we were pleased to get park almost opposite. Left bags and headed out to Whitby. Phil took us downtown, very nice of him. We went across the bridge and up the 199 steps to the abbey on the hill. We ...
