16th October Looking forward to my next podcasting foray when I will be visiting Ravenglass on the Cumbrian coast this coming Monday. The setting was a natual sheltered harbour, created by a the great sandbank formed where three rivers converged the Esk, Mite and Irt. Here the Romans established a fort as Hadrian’s Wall was begun. Remarkably while the fort itself is all but lost to erosion and stone robbing. The bath-house survives to a considerable height. Known as Walls Castle, it well merits inspection.
