To Hadrian’s wall!
Like Scotland’s barbarians,
We come from the North
Approaching Hadrian's wall after driving south from Edinburgh
At Chesters Roman Fort
Hiking west along the wall
A married couple
Seeking shelter on their trip
Stop in Gretna Green…
Visiting Hadrian's wall, we happened to stay in Gretna Green, a town which it turns out is known for runaway weddings!
When we arrived on a Saturday evening, even the historic Blacksmith's Shop (now a wedding venue) was deserted except for a few stray wedding guests.
Signs pointed to the new attraction in town, a courtship maze…
...but its gates were locked.
Even Main Street was deserted. At this point, things start to feel very Twilight Zone to us.
And then we see this.
And this, which we begin to suspect refers to the town itself - not just this electrical station.
I will admit to being somewhat relieved when we were able to drive to nearby Carlisle for dinner, proving that we weren't trapped in Gretna Green for eternity!
