A riverside walk in Newcastle….

Another grey but dry day for us. Today we are off to find the east coast end of Hadrian’s Wall. Last year we found the western end in Bowness-on-Solway hidden down a little pathway – not the actual wall just its location – still quite stunning.

This end was easier to find but somehow not that impressive as it has been rebuilt and doesn’t sit on the bank of the river or coast as I would have expected. Still here it is…

We then drove to Riverside Park and wandered down through the park to the river.

Enjoying a peaceful mile or so until the riverbank became ‘developed’.

Rather a stunning glass theatre graces the opposite shore.

We wandered around a bit to find the castle which really wasn’t that impressive.

And yeh well that kind of sums up Newcastle – I for one was expecting more!
