Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

A room with a view, Dun Carloway

More modern local buildings are a little more modest, but will they still be standing in 2000 years time?.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Well, that’s interesting. It’s not what you’d expect to see in those parts, especially from the second century BC. I thought crofts all crouched low to resist the wind. These look like early tower blocks. Fascinating.

  2. Interesting post and pictures. xx

  3. I always like the confident reconstructions of these old buildings which appear on information boards or guidebooks.
