The past in the horizon


How far away is a horizon ..?

Hadrian’s Wall from the North Sea to the Irish Sea,
excellent for trekking but hard for ‘mountain’ biking
in the footsteps of roman legionaries across England
just south of the border with Scotland.

A person can grow only as much as his horizon allows
(John Powell – american composer)

  1. Wonderful view of the Hadrian’s wall and excellent post. I often talk about Hadrian’s wall to my pupils at school, but I’ve never seen it except in photo… Have a relaxing week-end Ledrake!

      It’s really very interesting walking along (or biking) the Hadrians Wall – the total length is about 120 km – but people can walk (or bike) shorter or longer stages… 🙂

  2. Very inconsiderate of the Romans not to make their walls more suited to Mountain biking! It’s a remarkable credit to the Celts that the Romans had to cordon them off. Great pic.

      Thanks really appreciate you like it… 🙂

      Yeah at least they could have used some smaller stones, some pebbles… 🙂

      It seems that the Romans feared both the celts and the scots… 🙂
