The Moot Hall & The High Level Bridge

We were all packed up and ready to go before we went down for breakfast so all we needed to do after breakfast was settle the bill for the few extras we had added to our room.

Hexham Abbey & Market

On the way home we stopped off at Hexham to see the Abbey as recommended by JD. Hexham Abbey was very interesting and we timed it just right be able to go down the stairs into the ancient crypt. We would have liked a bit more time in the Abbey and in Hexham so we will need to go back to explore more.

It was a bit early for lunch so we continued on our journey, stopping at Tebay Services where I treated myself to of one of my childhood favourites; coconut, cherry and chocolate cake. After lunch we briefly called in on my Aunt, who lives in Manchester, so that Mr C could check that her new porch had been completed to satisfaction. She had been experiencing problems with the company doing the work. I felt a little guilty that the stay was so brief but it wasn’t possibly to stay any longer. With the detour we had spent seven hours in the car leaving us rather tired when we got home for a well earned rest.

    The trip to New Castle was packed but satisfying is my guess. Staying at a hotel is always a gamble, there are always those idiots that think they live alone on the planet and have no clue to shhhhh when others try to get some sleep.
    Wonderful pictures again and I think for you a wonderful trip again.

      I think they had had rather too much too drink… But apart from being loud they weren’t being a problem.

      I am glad you enjoyed the virtual trip :-)

    i love all three shots Cherie… the double bridge is nice… i like the market stalls outside of the abbey… then you finish it off with that magnificent point of view inside the abbey….peter:)

  3. I love their market square, located right next to the abbey.
    I saw something similar in Lichfield too, just some weeks ago.
    The church in the square was rather interesting.
    You know the little square next to Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum? That’s the one.
    1/4 is still a church, 1/4 conference centre, 1/2 museum!
    Ha ha… It’s a multifunctional church! :)
