Walked from Vindolanda, over the Roman Signal Station (a Tump), along the road to Grindon, then back along the wall to Once Brewed. Fabulous views opened up on this summit, long sections of the wall and Vindolanda. With so much to see, the 12.2 mile walk took 8h. Fine, if rather cloudy.pwheeler07/09/1976
