Hadrian's Wall north of King's Wicket
Hadrian's Wall north of King's Wicket
The actual wall shown here is not the original Roman design but has been built or altered by farmers later on, using stones from the original Roman curtain wall Link , remnants of which can be found a few metres east of the modern field wall in this section. The curtain wall of Hadrian's Wall was much wider, consisting of two stone walls about two metres apart and backfilled with rubble. The high point in the distance is the western end of Sewingshields Crags.
