Thanks for the further view. Interesting. How very dark it must have been inside!

Isn't it amazing to think that the Romans built this all those years ago. Where I lived in England (Throckley) the main road is built right next to the wall. It's sad that so many people pass it weach day on the bus and don't think twice about it. Amazing!

Hi Palmina. It is easy for people to take things for granted and I suppose it is the job of us amateaur snappers to rediscover and record all the wonderful things others miss.

Hello skida Is this house part of the wall??? Cheers Peter

Hi Peter. I think it is about 200-300 years old, but built from stones taken from the wall. It is proving difficult to find out any information about its history.

MIKE! I haven't seen you for a couple of days: I was getting concerned!

A few of the buses I drive are accessible but they only get used on the subsidised routes. I am based at Blyth, so I don't know if I drive near you.

Good to see you back here.
