This evening we had a message on our phone from a friend in Madison telling us to check out the Sunday edition of the Wisconsin State Journal to find a story that was written in Hexham, England. I happened to have a copy of that very paper (since I went shopping at Metcalf’s Sentry grocery store on Sunday and they give away free papers if you spend a certain amount). So I scoured the paper looking for the story and eventually found it.
The story, titled, “So Much Moor” in the print edition, is a nice little summary of some of the best places in northern England to visit. It makes the well reasoned case that northern England is worth a visit – even worth skipping London for. I can’t agree more. I guess others are catching on too.
