Halton Shields


HALTON-SHIELDS, a township, in the parish of Corbridge, union of Hexham, E. division of Tindale ward, S. division of Northumberland, 7 miles (N.E. by E.) from Hexham; containing 59 inhabitants. It is situated on the line of the Roman wall, eastward of the station called Hunnum, or Halton-Chesters, anciently garrisoned by the Ala Saviniana, and the walls, ditches, and interior offices of which now appear in confused heaps of ruins. Inscriptions have been found, with copper coins, stags' horns, and a quantity of muscleshells; and in 1803 a ring of pure gold, weighing nearly half an ounce, was discovered in the neighbourhood.
