Hadrian's Wall, Brunton Turret
Hadrian's Wall, Brunton Turret
Hadrianís Wall was planned as a continuous wall with a milecastle every Roman mile (1.48km) and two turrets equally spaced between each milecastle.
Hadrian's Wall
Hadrian's wall or 'Vallum Aelium' is the remains of a large Roman fortification. The wall extended west from Segedunum at Wallsend on the River Tyne to the shore of the Solway Firth, ending a short but unknown distance west of the village of Bowness-on-Solway. Construction probably started sometime in AD 122 and was largely completed within six years.

The remains were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
