Jedburgh is a neat little town and like many others at this time of year is looking very pretty with lots of brightly coloured flowers.
The Abbey is a magnificent ruin which is definitely worth a look so we visited it before we departed from Jedburgh. The audio tour was really worthwhile.
This was the view from the gallery above the west door.
It was then on to visit Housesteads Fort built by the Romans.
It is adjacent to Hadrian’s Wall which you can see in this photo.
After leaving the fort we drove about 60km on the A686 which crosses the Penines and offers some spectacular views along the way. It has been rated as one of the best drives in Britain.
