We went to Vindolanda - a Roman settlement on the Wall.   Shopping lists were found preserved by the peat, giving some insights into domestic life.

The Keel Row

As I came thro' Sandgate,

Thro' Sandgate, thro' Sandgate,

As I came thro' Sandgate,

I heard a lassie sing:

'O, weel may the keel row,

The keel row, the keel row,

O weel may the keel row

That my laddie's in.'

World's first and only tilting bridge.   We did not see it tilt.   Times for tilting are on the web

The living accommodation was on the left and the bedrooms on the right.   The loo was with the bedrooms

Narrow boats on the canal

These enlarge enough to read easily
the falkirk wheel  A wonderful mechanism, we went on a short trip from the pool at the bottom up to the canal at the top.   The barge was very near to the sides of the caisson whilst we were on the wheel.

The Wallace Memorial

I called this picture 'Aliens', which must be appropriate as there is a flying saucer leaving the area.   In reality it was a sculpture on a roundabout near a supermarket in Livingstone.
