Today after walking and a little shopping around Carlisle we took off and headed north to Savage lands.  Where   lol  Scotland. We went and saw and drove Hadrian's wall.  I have always wanted to see it.  Quarter of me was a little disappointed  and most of me knew.  That little part was expecting to see this huge wall like you see in China, but the main part of me knew that  it wasn't there anymore but bit and pieces.  Oh we saw what remains.  But at times was  hard to figure out. because the farmers took stones from the wall for their fences, homes, sheep bins and so on. so you were seeing the same stones all over the place.  Until you came upon one sections that were  really think and all then you knew you were on the wall, between the farmers and mother nature there isn't this 4.5 meters high wall (pictures depict that the towers would have been the height of a two story building with a bit higher for the top)  but sections  maybe as tall as me and some as long as miles.

It is worth seeing.  The gates or Roman Forts for the most part are excavated so you can see them.  WE got lucky to have a Very COLD and windy day so we really didn't go and see all the forts just a few. We Then decided to head to our next stop newark with a stop for dinner along the way.

The Last picture you may recognize it.  This was the tree in Robin Hood Prince of thieves with Kevin Kostner.  Remember  he climbs a tree    well this is it.
