Hadrians Wall for AJJ

  Hadrians Wall
 is my next contribution  for the new theme at
I used one of my stamped and painted  journal pages as a base.
The map, photo etc were added in my digital program.
Some images were found on a Free to use Google search.

If you look closely at the map, there is a X near the wall. 
This is an old map print but it is also  indicates the area   where we live.
About 40 years ago they were repairing the road through the village,
 work was to be stopped,  when they came across  the remaining stonework of a Roman Turret.
They knew it was there,  but they  were taking the opportunity to do more archeology.
. Experts were called,  we took the children from the school to see,  the by now deep excavation.
While it was all recorded.
Sadly due to its position it was carefully covered and the road repaired.

This is a piece of the wall open to visitors at Heddon on the Wall.
Just over the top of the rise you can see our village  in the distance.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today,
 your comments are always appreciated.

  3. Super page Yvonne and a very interesting piece of history. We have visited various parts of the wall in years past and I am always amazed at how much of it remains, you live in a beautiful part of our country and I really miss out visits "up North"
    now we have had to stop caravanning.

  5. Love the page you made about the history of your area. The last picture looks very peaceful.

  6. Cool page and I love seeing the photos of the wall. I sometimes wonder if these ancient walls still remain. But how cool to see that it is there, and that it is part of your local area. Hugs-Erika

  7. What an incredibly beautiful area you live in, Yvonne, steeped in history and ancient architecture. This is a fabulous AJJ entry. It was also good to see where you call home!

  10. Terrific page Yvonne and an area I know well. These days, because we don't have a car, we go from Newcastle to Carlisle by train and the route follows Hadrian's Wall for most of the way. A very beautiful part of Britain.

    Love Chrissie xx

  11. Love your journal page Yvonne. What a wonderful piece of history with that wall section, it's sad that these things take a back seat to 'progress'. hugs :)

  14. Great page Yvonne, Hadrians wall was always a favourite place to visit when the children were young, but haven't been for a few years now.
    Loved your bit of local history, such a shame they had to cover it up.
