Holiday. 10, Housesteads Fort, Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland

On our way back to Burton-on-Trent, we went to Housesteads Roman Fort, on Hadrian's Wall.

 



 


 




 


 




 



Views north towards the Cheviot Hills and Scotland.  Imagine being a soldier in the fort, waiting for the Picts, and later the Scots, to come over those hills to attack you.

 

 




After Housesteads, our car broke down in a village called Fourstones. We were taken home in a big recovery truck!
