Burrow Walls Roman Fort


Burrow Walls is located between Workington and Seaton in Cumbria. This Scheduled Monument includes the buried remains of a Roman fort and also visible sections of a wall made from reused Roman masonry. The scale of these remaining walls suggests that they were probably part of a Medieval hall. Excavations of the Roman fort indicate that it has two phases; the first being a typical 2nd century fort with inner rampart and double ditch; the second being a smaller fort within the defences of the earlier fort.[1] The area of the Scheduled Monument straddles the Civil Parishes of Workington and Seaton.
