Haltwhistle Burn Roman Fortlets


Haltwhistle BurnFrom about AD 105 there was a small fort guarding Stanegate, the Roman military road from Corbridge (Corio) to Carlisle (Luguvalium), where it crossed the steep and narrow valley of the Haltwhistle Burn.[1] The site was excavated in 1908, revealing a barrack block and officers' quarters, which are still visible as earthworks, along with a section of Stanegate. There were 4 separate small forts or fortlets near the burn and now referred to as Haltwhistle Burn 1..4.
