The campsite was a little damp, and the weather was blowing a fair breeze, but the tent was up in good time; I threw on a brew and had dinner before a trip to the local to test the local ale.
Richard arrived early the next morning, and once settled, we met up with the rest of the group for the weekend; Claire, Maria, Ceri, Catherine and Lewis, with his two daschunds; Chappie and Brandy. We set off on the bus to Chester's Fort, near Chollerford, where our route was a simple stroll of 12 miles back along the trail to the Twice Brewed Inn.
A good day walking into a stiff wind, a soaking mid way through and some top views of the best bits of the wall.
