So, finally, we are at the end of the England journey. After the Lake district, we travelled north to Edinburgh Scotland and stopped off for a little history lesson at Hadrian’s Wall, an 80km or so wall running across the neck of England that the Roman Emperor Hadrian built to keep out the barbarians north of the wall (ancient Scots, I guess!) about two thousand years ago. This was once the very edge of the mighty Roman empire. It’s basically a little stone wall like the rest of them in England, however has a few ditches either side and stretches on forever. It was pretty cool to see.
Next stop: Scotland!
