Crag Lough

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 25 September 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Crag Lough is a small lake situated on the north side of Hadrian's Wall, the few people in this frame give sense of scale to the landscape. Try and imagine what this place was like to attack or defend when the Romans were here on top of their twenty foot high wall across the width of Britain!
