Want to come look at some of the things I did in Northumbria?
On the first day we explored the Viaduct.
Here a collage of all the steps you had to go up to get to it. I really like places like this cos I loves running up to bridges, and gates and stuff like that and figuring out how to get over it all by myself. Cos I is clever.
The viaduct used to be for trains in the Victorian period. Back then they didn’t care about how much things cost they cared about doing things right and elegantly and celebrating their engineering achievements… so when industry started to not be so important or making enough money or something they stopped using it. It all started crumbling down. It got listed status and got repaired in 1996 by a heritage trust and now it part of a really cool walk. It nice that it got repaired and the old railway goes through the woods. Now and then you can see parts like the stoppers for the trains what still be left behind. Mum thinks it amazing all the places the Victorians put railways, you could get virtually everywhere by train. Even to the middle of nowhere! Wherever that be.
We also went to a couple of the nearby towns. Like Haltwhistle and Hexham.
Mum casnot remember which piccures come from which place, but we think Hexham had the Cathedral and Haltwhistle has this…
It Mum and TNP looking rather unimpressed about being in the ‘centre’ or England. Hurrah.
