Remains of Roman wall, Horncastle - East Lindsey

Roman curtain wall, late C3 to mid C4, which survives as both standing masonry and as buried remains in various ownerships. One visible section has been incorporated into Horncastle Library. The condition of each section of the monument varies, but uncontrolled vegetation growth and weathering threatens several of the exposed sections. The owner of the southwest corner of the wall circuit has completed a Historic England grant-aided project to provide a condition survey and to define repair options. This will serve as a template for the treatment of this and other parts of the wall circuit.
