Hadrian's Wall between Port Carlisle and Bowness on Solway, Port Carlisle, Bowness - Allerdale

Section of Hadrian's Wall (wall miles 78 and 79), surviving within a modern field boundary. In places the Wall facing is exposed up to four courses high. It appears likely that the significance of the monument could be secured by limited works to control tree and scrub growth, some consolidation and fencing. Delivery of a scheme of works to achieve this has been discussed with the owner, for delivery via a lottery-funded community volunteer programme
