North East of England

A scenic part of England is the border of Scotland in Northumberland. The Roman’s built a wall dividing the two countries, called Hadrian’s Wall which can still be seen. The landscape is wild and rugged, a place where many battles were fought. Castles and ruins still stand guard. The towns and villages were traditionally built of stone. Old fishing villages lie on the coast. In the centre is the Northumberland National Park.

A little further south are the cities of Newcastle and Durham, both known for their friendliness and the warmth of the local people.

Further south is Yorkshire, an area of hills and dales, lovely coastline and down to Earth friendly inhabitants. The parts around Haworth in Yorkshire where the authors, the Bronte sisters lived and wrote their much loved books, is known as Bronte Country and a magnet for lovers of their literature.
