Poltross Burn Milecastle

  • Description

    "Hadrian's Wall was planned as a continuous wall with a milecastle every Roman mile (1.48 kilometres) and two turrets equally spaced between each milecastle. Known locally as the King's Stables, Poltross Burn Milecastle is one of the best-preserved milecastles on Hadrian's Wall and is also unusually large." Photo by G Laird, 2017.
