Rather English - Trace the Devil's Causeway

A Roman road through 55 miles of Northumberland, the Devil's Causeway once connected the mouth of the River Tweed at Berwick to Dere Street, another Roman Road which followed a route from York to towns further north in modern-day Scotland.
The route can still be traced at various points - some clearer than others - and gives an interesting insight into what life must have been like for the Roman forces trudging around this part of northern England.
