Dimensions[ edit ] Hadrian’s Wall was 80 Roman miles or East of the River Irthing , the wall was made from squared stone and measured 3 metres 10 feet wide and 5 to 6 metres 16 to 20 feet high, while west of the river the wall was originally made from turf and measured 6 metres 20 feet wide and 3. These dimensions do not include the wall’s ditches, berms and forts. The central section measured eight Roman feet wide 7. Immediately south of the wall, a large ditch was dug, with adjoining parallel mounds, one on either side. This is known today as the Vallum , even though the word Vallum in Latin is the origin of the English word wall, and does not refer to a ditch. In many places — for example Limestone Corner — the Vallum is better preserved than the wall, which has been robbed of much of its stone. Route[ edit ] Route of Hadrian’s Wall Sections of Hadrian’s Wall remain along the route, though much has been dismantled over the years to use the stones for various nearby construction projects. Hadrian’s Wall extended west from Segedunum at Wallsend on the River Tyne , via Carlisle and Kirkandrews-on-Eden , to the shore of the Solway Firth , ending a short but unknown distance west of the village of Bowness-on-Solway.

How many remember the book’s heady aroma of freshly printed ink? Ian Allan should’ve bottled it; they’d have made a fortune!

Call it a dereliction of duty, if you like, but the discrepancies creeping into the hobby were totally at odds with the orderliness that spotters expected, and I ended up joining the legion of disenchanted youngsters who turned their attention to something more rewarding like railway photography – a natural adjunct to train spotting.
