Hadrian's Wall at Heddon-on-the-Wall


A consolidated stretch of Wall, up to 2 metres (61⁄2 feet) thick in places. "Stretches of Hadrian’s Wall 220 metres long and of the Wall-ditch to its north are visible at Heddon-on-the-Wall, just west of Newcastle upon Tyne. This fragment of the Wall is the best preserved of all those so far excavated which were built to broad gauge – the original specification for the Wall when building began about AD 122. A late medieval or post-medieval corn-drying kiln cut into the core of the Wall here is an example of the many ways in which its ruins were exploited by people living along its line."
