photoblog image North Tyne

North Tyne

 

The North Tyne at Chesters Roman Fort, Chollerford, Northumberland. Taken from just in front of the Roman baths used by the garrison - a cavalry regiment from Asturias in Spain. At just about this point the Romans had a bridge, carrying the Wall over the river. Very little remains of the Wall at this point in its journey across the country.

 

[En route to a conference in Florence today - normal service resumed after my return on 26th.]

C'est un très joli paysage, j'aime les reflets des arbres dans l'eau. Bon séjour à  Florence !
you left us with such a beautiful serene image to ponder over until you get back Tom....petersmile
This is really beautiful, Tom - I love the crispness of the image - and the reflections!
What a beautiful and peaceful scene Tom!
Have a safe trip.
The Romans sure did get around, Tom, didn't them. Hmmm. Any chance you have some Roman heritage??? smile

I just had to go read up. Always wondered how it was as a Roman soldier on the front with the barbarians. Could be cool to sit here fishing, while watching out for lurking people with black smeared faces.

Old Hadrian featured a number of times, during my visit to Israel. He was a busy chap, especially with reference to building walls, buildings, churches, aqueducts and the likes.
Beautiful scenery, but then Northumberland is famous for that.
quite lovely...
