The River Tyne

For people trapped in a two-dimensional world, Chester’s Roman Fort is closed for the winter.

It was extremely windy and close to dark. The clarity of these pictures impressed me.

I played chess on this board at the George Hotel in Chollerford during summer 2008, shortly before writing my first climate article.

Yesterday, my rental car broke down just as I was passing the hotel. So I got another game in.  The rental car company (Green Motion UK) left me stranded in Chollerford, which will be the topic of future blog posts and tweets.
