Hadrian's Wall at Willowford, 1969
Hadrian's Wall at Willowford, 1969
A visit that combines physical geography with archaeology. The bridge abutment, shown more clearly in some of the photos at LinkExternal link , is now about 60 metres from the bank of the River Irthing, whereas one assumes they would have been next to it in Roman times. There is a description within the details text for this section of wall at LinkExternal link . See also LinkExternal link . Steep woodland coats the river cliff at Harrow's Scar in the background.
