    • Wark is only a few miles away, but the road to it isn’t really good for walking, so it is the first time I have been there. We went to look at an archaeological dig they are doing round the old castle (the ruins are under big overgrown or grassy mounds). Interesting to see what they are discovering, some of which is quite unexpected, but not particularly photogenic, to my eyes anyway, probably because I am uninformed about archeological matters; but yes, I loved to see the River Tweed from this viewpoint in Northumberland. Thecastle was right on the Border, looking out over Scotland from a high position.

      • The dig sounds very interesting Cara – historical in nature, perhaps so that there will be a write-up about the findings.

      • Hi Mary – There are interesting details of the dig at Wark, among other digs, on the iFlodden website (Flodden 1513), I think they are quite excited about what they have found. I should have read up about it before going there, really, it would have been more intelligent – we’d only just heard about the dig.
