Exposed stone base of the Antonine Wall
Exposed stone base of the Antonine Wall
The Antonine Wall was, for most of its length, a turf rampart built upon a stone base. A section of the base of the wall is exposed here in Goldenhill Park. The site is fenced off (the photo was taken through the railings), and is located not far from the north-western entrance of the park.

For a view of this site in context, see NS4972 : Millstones in Goldenhill Park.

At the top of the same slope is the location of a Roman fort: NS4972 : Site of Roman Fort on Antonine Wall.

Further east on the course of the Antonine Wall, another section of the stone base of the wall is exposed to view in Roman Park, Bearsden: NS5372 : Roman Park: base of the Antonine Wall. A little further east again, two more sections are on display in New Kilpatrick Cemetery (also in Bearsden): NS5572 : New Kilpatrick Cemetery: base of the Antonine Wall and NS5572 : New Kilpatrick Cemetery: base of the Antonine Wall.
