Know Your Hadrian's Wall Country

The first day back when returning from a continental trip is disorientating. Things just seem to run more smoothly. Maybe that is a view seen through rose tinted spectacles, but that is just how it is. The adrenalin does not flow so readily when you return to the daily grind, but that will be in all areas of life, not just on the buses.

So what better than to take a tour locally around the region. It was a tour organised by Hadrian's Wall Heritage under the banner of 'Know Your Hadrian's Wall Country'. This walking tour was guided by the excellently knowledgeable Robert Forsythe and the theme was Transport and Industrial Heritage. It was a peaceful day and I learnt a great deal of the local history.

Have a look at the Know Your Hadrian's Wall Country Facebook page

for details of more themed trips. The next is a Border Reivers' tour around the Debatable Lands with author Tom Moss. Should be a fascinating day. Particularly with the knowledge that the Accidental Bus Driver will be driving.

Pack your steel bonnets.
