Heart of Hadrian's Wall

...a day is never long enough

Bewcastle

Location

Bewcastle Castle
Cumbria
England

Further away, but well worth the trip, is the castle at Bewcastle, built on the site of a Roman camp – and don't miss the 7th century carved Celtic Cross beside the austere little church (one of three such crosses in the Borders; one at Ruthven in Dumfriesshire beautifully preserved in the church there; the third a fragment of Acca's Cross in Hexham Abbey).
