walking the wall...Hadrian's, that is

Feeling a little down today, but here's a Place of the Day post nonetheless.  This place has been on my list for a long time...someday I'll get there.

Hadrian's Wall - Hexham, Northumberland, England

Still standing (for the most part) after 1800 years of change...a testament to its builders.  Over 73 miles long originally, with a well-preserved 10 mile stretch near Northumberland that can still be visited.  Langley Castle is the best place to start from...before you begin your walk in history.


  1. I, too, have always wanted to walk Hadrian's Wall! Awesome piece of history....

    Don't feel down, things will look up again soon!

  2. Doing my best...maybe I need to plan a wall walk sooner than I think.
