Friday 24th May 2019.
This morning we drove up the M6 north and just before our exit at Carlisle we caught up with our motorhoming buddies Alison and Peter who we had agreed to meet at Walltown Crags/ quarry national park.
From here it is possible to walk along the Pennine Way and get to a section of Hadrians Wall. The car park is next to an area that the Romans quarried to provide the stone for the wall.
Its was a stiffish climb uphill to join the end of the wall which we followed for a few kilometres, the scenery was stunning especially on a beautifully sunny day like today but I wouldn’t have wanted to guard it in the depths of winter, all the pictures of Romans show bare legs!
From the car park at Walltown it was only a short drive to tonight’s camp site Dandy Dinmont just north of Carlisle, its very busy as it is a bank holiday weekend but thankfully I had booked pitches for the two motorhomes a few weeks ago.
