Fell Foot Park
For our Marble Jar treat, we decided to have a fun day out at Fell Foot Park near Newby Bridge. We enjoyed paddling in the lake & spotting fish. We fed the ducks and were really lucky to see some very cute, fluffy cygnets. We loved challenging ourselves and each other in the Wild Play Area too, where we had to climb and balance around the obstacle course. After our picnic, we visited the cafe for a yummy ice-cream! We had a lovely day and have already started planning what to do for our next Marble Jar treat! 😉
Housesteads Roman Fort
What a fabulous day we had at Housesteads Roman Fort! We met Rufus Aelius Victor, a Roman veteran, who trained us as recruits for an auxiliary unit. We had lots of fun exploring the fort and walking along Hadrian's Wall too. Here's a snapshot of our day at Housesteads.
