UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE ROMAN FRONTIER
Taking over 6 years to build, the wall boasted 80 milecastles, 17 larger forts and a defensive earthwork, the Vallum, to the south (and a more V-shaped ditch to the north).
The Roman frontier does not just comprise of Hadrian’s Wall, however, but, also the older structures that pre-date the wall along the Stanegate and the Roman roads leading north.
