Movie magic? Nothing of the sort actually! We just happened to get lucky with Shane looking like a giant, and me a little hobbit! We felt so incredibly fortunate visiting this amazing movie set village. And it is just that ... an entire village! Plenty more to come from our favorite place on planet earth. Hobbiton! #lordoftheringsfan#lordoftheringstrilogy#theshire#hobbithouse#hobbithome ...
Is Autumn still clinging on where you live? 🍂🍁🍂 Fleeting snow has already brushed Britain but there are still pockets of colour left over here. Love this long tunnel of trees and leaves at Sussex, England. How beautiful is this over 2,000 year-old Roman road! Photo by @c_vnovo
And yes, this lane really is thousands of years in the making. It follows an ancient track along the route of the London to Chichester Roman road. This is a perfect place to tell a tall tale as you wander along with a stack of butties in your backpack. Can you imagine those that have trod this path, shaped with every passing footstep into this hollow tunnel-like view!
This beautiful public footpath is near Halnaker, a hamlet a few miles north of Chichester in West Sussex, in the South Downs National Park. Other Roman roads were long (and mostly straight) roads, mainly designed for military use, created by the Roman Army during the nearly four centuries (43 – 410 AD) that Britannia was a province of the Roman Empire. It is estimated that about 2,000 miles (3,200 km) of paved trunk roads (i.e. surfaced roads running between two towns or cities) were constructed and maintained throughout the province.
