Burning Beacons Birdoswald-Connecting Light Walltown on Hadrian's Wall

A walk to Gilsland ending with Birdoswald Roman Fort. More walks can be downloaded from the Hadrian's Wall Trust/National Trail website here.
Thought it might be interesting to contrast some photos taken at the Beacons for the Diamond Jubilee (where I helped out and have blogged about) earlier this year at Birdoswald with some photos of ConnectingLight art installation at Walltown (where I helped out) later on this year. (Will definitely blog about this at some point.)

I wonder what mother would have made of those lights in her time up your way!

It reminded a lot of people of 'The Prisoner' series especially when we were putting them up! Surreal at times for sure.

Somebody sent me a link to the Connect light project on the link and was thinking of coming for a look till I noticed it was all to late - it appeared to be only 31st of August and 1st of September to me.
Looked a great project though.

Many thanks Sandy!

Good to see you here and mega apologies for not visiting your site!

I really do need to write up my ConnectingLight experience pronto - so (hopefully) watch this space! :-)
