No bits of stonework to specify the Wall for several hours of walking but then all of a sudden was the first sight of Hadrian's wall.
After that, lots and lots of steep hills and Roman stonework. I am not too good going up hills these days (just getting old) and so I slowed the group pace a lot. We ended up by walking 12 miles and my muscles were beginning to complain at the end.
A major fort just off the wall itself. Lots of sheep and cattle around
And this is what the surrounding country side looks like. Lots of bog plants so must be very boggy, so no cereal cultivation. Just sheep and cows for beef.
Went to the local pub, the Milecastle Inn, which is totally isolated on the moors. Food terrific,place packed out.
Tomorrow we are only walking five miles.
