I was down at Willowford Farm early in the morning to witness the announcement that Hadrian's Wall is the first World Heritage Site to be awarded Fair Trade Status.

A happy group of people cavorted in the sunshine with various blow-up Fair Trade items while photographers recorded them for posterity.

We even had a 'proper' Roman Soldier on hand to keep the locals in line.
Then in the afternoon it was a rehearsal for the Hadrian's Wall Illumination event that takes place on the 13th of March.
For yesterday's rehearsal lights had been set up between Hotbank Crag and the milecastle 37, just west of Housesteads Fort.
