It’s difficult to find anywhere more spectacular for a walk than Hadrian’s Wall on a beautiful sunny day. We started off in Cawfield Quarry trying to follow a rather sketchy circular walk plan from a newly purchased book.
Luckily it’s not easy to get lost in this part of the world. You can see exactly where you’re going and the scenery is incredible.
As you can see, Gordon wasn’t finding this walk too taxing at all. Despite the sunshine he kept his coat on for the whole walk while I had my bingo wings on display within minutes. Tow path walking is not good preparation for the steep ups and downs you get in this part of the world!
Anyone familiar with Robin Hood Prince of Thieves will recognise this as the location for the scene where Robin rescues the boy from the Sherrif’s men.
Back to the quarry and time for a quick beer in the Twice Brewed Inn before heading back home. Shame I was driving as there were 83 rums to choose from!
