Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall (Latin: Vallum Aelium) was a defensive fortification in Roman Britain, begun in AD 122 during the rule of emperor Hadrian. In addition to its military role, gates through the wall served as customs posts. A significant portion of the wall still exists and can be followed on foot along the Hadrian's Wall Path. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England and was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

We left Leeds early in the morning and we reached the Harian's Wall in an hour. It's indeed a spectacular view.
 
a close shot
We walked further to explore it.
simply magnificent view
the well-preserved walls
Some stood on it but it was really cold and the grass was wet.
My girl was careless and she fell on her side.
love this faraway view
They were still there but I had quit.

It was a great experience. Didn't know it was such an interesting place to visit.

Next we stopped at Jedburgh.

  13. Hadrian is truly a nice place to visit and I agree that the view in magnificent and fabulous.
    I think it must be very eerie at night as no one lives there.
