Walking on Hadrian’s Wall

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Jeff Hill shot this footage of Kate walking on Hadrian’s Wall back in 2004. She had picked up a fallen branch along the way and fashioned it into a walking stick. After the walk, she brought the stick with her onto the bus. By the end of our tour she had grown too fond of it to leave it behind in Scotland. At Glasgow airport she tried to take it onboard. The BA clerk stopped her in her tracks and said ‘Madam, you can’t bring that on.’ Kate pointed to a fellow passenger who was walking with a cane and said ‘Are you going to let him on with that thing?’ The clerk replied, ‘Madam, that’s a cane. What you have is a stick!’ Kate didn’t give up easily and when her eyes welled with tears BA relented and checked it through as is. When it turned up on the carousel in Montreal with its baggage tags GLA-LHR, LHR-YUL we all laughed. We’d all but forgotten about it. Kate was buried last Monday with her walking stick.
