At this point, I did not know what the A69 speed limit was, so I just travelled at 60mph. I was a bit nervous heading into Hexham with the odd, to us, roundabouts. The traffic gets very busy there at times, but no problem encountered.
After settling in, we walked to the village shops, had some lunch and visited the very beautiful and impressive Hexham Abbey. Via Tescos for our liquid needs, well food as well, back to the caravan for dinner.
R cooked some quite expensive lamb shops that we bought at Tescos. They were British lamb and they were sublime. I suspect the animals had been grain fed as the texture of the meat was quite different to back home. Can you grain feed sheep? We had lamb chops once more during our stay and they were much more like we have. Bags of mixed salad are not what we normally buy, but in this case, they were very appropriate.
A bit of tv and then bed. R decided it would be better to pull the mattress off the short bed and sleep on the lounge room floor, so he did.
Exterior of Hexham Abbey but not really its best angle.
The best I could do of the interior.
