#76 - Hadrians Wall Day Three

A much shorter day walking, but an earlier start given that we all had to break camp and finish in time to join the bank holiday traffic.

Lewis, Catherine and Ceri had taken the decision to drive back south early, which just left me, Richard, Claire and Maria.

We dropped the cars off back at Birdoswald Fort then jumped in Richard's, heading off to Lanercost Priory and the start. A pleasant enough section but lacking the dramatic scenes of the previous two days. An annoying drizzle stopped and started and followed us all the way back to the fort and a welcome cuppa. We finished around midday, and by 1pm, I was on my way back home; a 7 hour drive!
