Trending in the Guardian

Every now and then a project of mine makes an appearance in the Guardian newspaper’s Country Diary. This is coincidence as their writer Susie White @CottageGardener lives just across the valley from me. However, it is great to see the heritage I work for through other people’s eyes; the comments are always worth a scroll through.

This week Susie’s writing achieved a new milestone – her diary entry about walking across  Epiacum Roman Fort and historic landscape was trending on the Guardian’s front page, meaning it was one of the ten most read articles at that time.

Readers were obviously needing some respite from all the other news.
