All roads lead to Rome

Boring Postcards


Not all roads lead to Rome. This signpost was found outside Senhouse Roman Museum in Maryport. The sign tells the distance to Ravenglass, Bowness on Solway, Rome and Wallsend.

This was to us a journey of a lifetime. My husband suggested in the beginning of the 1980s that we should bike and camp along Hadrian´s wall but it never came to be. In 2017 I suggested we try the trip but this time in a rented cottage and by car. Many thanks to our son without whom this memorable journey wouldn´t have been possible. We saw all of the excavated big forts and much of the smaller remnants from Maryport in the west to Wall´s End in the east of Hadrian´s Wall.

To the memory of my husband who shared the journey along Hadrian´s wall in april 2017.
