Two views of the thatched Causeway House.
A short distance further on is the entrance to Vindolanda. This Roman fort, unlike most of the ones on the wall, is privately owned, is open to the public and has a superb visitor centre with a host of Roman artifacts, including the famous letter home asking for more socks and underpants. It is well worth a visit, preferably on a sunny day. We gave it a miss on this occasion but it is highly recommended.

but the Information Centre and Museum are well worth the entrance fee.

Some of the gang cross the wonderful Yorkshire stile.
John practises signalling at the Long Stone near the site of the Roman signalling station.
