I agree with you. I spent three years stationed at Hadrians Camp Carlisle. A few days would indeed have been fantastic! ;) :lol:

The best museum that I have visited in many years, staffed by volunteers. Covers WW2 radar, and the cold war. Volunteers were mainly based there during the cold war, or in similar places. Bit scary when you ask one of them how close did we come to complete nuclear war. Just watch out for funny opening times if your visiting.

Agreed, my wife and I spent a weekend down that way not long after we were married, thoroughly enjoyed it and as you say a very interesting place to visit.
