This morning started off sunny.
So we went for a walk.
By the time we got to the start of our walk it had clouded over.
Our walk was to be along part of
We started at Banks
and parked near a Roman turret.
The path followed the edge of fields
before diverting through a wood.
To get out of the wood
we went through a kissing gate,
and into the sunshine.
From then on
it was lovely and sunny,
and quite warm.
The sun cast distinct shadows.
At last we could see our destination ahead.
It lies on the wall
and is on the site of a Roman fort.
There were a few other people visiting the site which was sadly closed.
So no tea and cake at the café then.
At this time of year it's only open at weekends.
Then we set off on our return walk.
With lovely views.
At the end of which,
after a short car journey,
we found a tearoom.
At Lanercost Priory.
But that's a visit for another day.
