I’m a little late to the party and like others here I thought I’d best introduce myself.
I’m Alasdair and write about Heritage & Cultural Toursim primarily in here in the Northeast of England, but anywhere I find myself ending up really. I blog occasionally on the site Carter’s Country on subjects as diverse as the Bishop Of Durham’s former official residence to a famous serial killer from Victorian times. (I also have Open Jotter)
Geographically I’m a three and half hour train ride north of London which is pretty much ideal. The beautiful Lake District is an hour and a half drive away, as is the border with Scotland. We have the fantastic county of Northumberland and hour away, full of castles and cross border fighting from history with the Picts and of course Hadrian’s Wall, the great barrier that tried and failed to keep the Picts out.
I haven’t seen a roll-call here of who is from where yet, so if anyone has any questions about my part of the world please feel free to ask via the comments section.
