For day two of our holiday we visited the lively little market town of Hexham, notable for amongst other things its magnificent Abbey Cathedral. People have worshipped on this site for nearly 1400 years.
On top of the moors and in my “home” county. Whitfield Church in an area known as Little Switerzland
Hexham Abbey This old English church in Corbridge has utilised a Roman Archway. When the Romans left, local British tribes would use Roman materials for centuries in their own buildings.
At Roman Corbridge, an old Roman garrison Aydin Castle – 13thcentury building part castle part more modern house.
Sycamore Gap on Hadrians Wall where Kevin Costner in Robin Hodd stayed overnight on the way to Nottingham. It makes no sense as Sherwood Forest is a few hundred miles south… Rather like coming from Mexico to Dallas but camping by The Great Lakes!
