Picture from yesterday… I spent most of the day trying to sort out the phasing of the building and extensions at Shillmoor stone tent, so I haven’t any grand sweeping landscapes or bits of iordnance to share today.

Rather this image made me smile as I was leaving site (in my defence, it had been a very long day!)

The postbox and bins partly obscuring the official and slightly intimidating MOD PRIVATE ROAD sign are an interesting reminder that the Otterburn Training Area is an occupied rural farming landscape as well as a military training landscape. 

It’s a nice illustration of how nothing is black and white around the fringes of this constantly negotiated landscape.
