Hadrian’s Wall was built by the Romans in 122AD. It’s purpose was basically to keep the barbaric Scots out with a wall running across England. This wall is not along the border between England and Scotland but exclusively built within England. The Wall basically runs...More

This was somewhere I had wanted to visit for a while, but would not go on my own, because I don't like cows! However, we went through the gate to the nearby fort, which is just like a small hill nowadays, and found a way...More

Interesting temple connected to Hadrian's Wall, peaceful and well preserved. You can still see the God Mithras image and another figure, it gives of a good idea of how it would have looked. People still leave offerings to the God. Nice place.

Frankly what this tiny temple represents is far more important than what it looks like! It is the only Mithraeum you can see along Hadrian's Wall and worth pausing for that. Also the mobile coffee van stops nearby in the morning until 12 noon! But...More

Not very well signposted on maps or on the road but well worth the visit. It is a short walk from the car park but not visible from the car park itself. The information board has seen better days and definitely needs an upgrade. The...More
