The Military Road near Iron Sign looking west
After the crossroads NZ1067 : Crossroads on Military Road near Iron Sign, the Military Road here constructed on the remains of Hadrian's Wall, climbs over Eppies Hill then bends to the right heading in a straight line for Harlow Hill, which is visible in the distance on the right. It provides a good demonstration of how the Wall was laid out in this part of Northumberland in straight lines sighted on local hills.
