Emperor Hadrian...next to his very big wall!
the cliffs of insanity
nature launches the final attack on Hadrian's wall
see how expansive my land is?
oh no, a barbarian breeching the defences!
too much sugar at break-time
follow the yellow brick road...
levitating over the wall
more cliffs of insanity...

awww...aren't they sweet. It was the end of lambing season and there were lots of twinned lambs frolicking in the fields.
Steph outside the ruins of a turret.
It really does go on for ever (80 Roman miles).
Steph walking down towards Willowford bridge
Willowford bridge buildings: this was the location of a boundary checkpoint allowing passage between the north and south.
Steph gently puts down the stone after carrying it for a while.

Outside Birdoswald Roman Fort
A "short-cut" meandering away from the wall towards the river.
Pretty blue-bells on the river banks.
More pretty blue-bells...and a very muddy Tobias, who slipped over on the path and landed on his bottom - oops!
Gosh, the blue-bells were so pretty!
Even in these remote places, Steph has to wear sunglasses to avoid being recognised by fans...
Overlooking mile-castle ruins along Hadrian's wall
The wall is *this* wide
Tobias at Sycamore Gap, under the very tree where Kevin Costner took a break in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves!
