|Drinking fountain in Bamburgh|
A fortuitous wrong road on the way home took us past Weetwood Bridge
"Weetwood Bridge has been much altered over its existence but is thought to have first been constructed as a crossing point over the Till during the early 16th Century. The bridge lies on the direct route from Wooler Haugh where Surrey’s army camped on the 7th September 1513. It would have offered the army the best crossing point over the Till for its heavy ordnance and other equipment as it marched to join the Devil’s Causeway north of the river and onwards to Barmoor Castle on the 8th September."
Now I just need to find a good historical novel about this period and these people!
