Note: Do not rely on this information. It is very old.
Hadrian's Wall, a stone wall, with a ditch on the north and a vallum, or line of ramparts, on the south, extends from what is now Bowness, on the Solway Firth, to the mouth of the Tyne. Considerable remains are still to be seen, the wall in some places being nine feet in height. Two accounts of it have been written by Dr. Collingwood Bruce.
