Hadrians Wall

Appleby Manor Country House Hotel is just an hours drive from Hadrians Wall and one of the many Roman forts that are situated along the wall. The wall was originally constructed around 122AD and was completed approximately 6 years later, it was commissioned by Emperor Hadrian in order to control the Roman frontier and to keep out any raiding parties.  

The wall stretches from coast to coast and is approximately 80 Roman miles long, at the time of its completion it was over 16 feet tall.

There are numerous sites and museums along the route that reveal and preserve the story of Hadrians wall and what life was like to be living as a Roman soldier on the wall.

The closest site to Appleby Manor is Birdoswald Roman Fort and is located just over an hours drive away, this site consists of the longest stretch of wall and contains extensive remains of the Roman Fort that was at this location. The site is managed and run by English Heritage with a Cafe and gift shop. More information on this site can be found here.

If you are willing to travel an extra 25 minutes you will find yourself at one of Europes most important Roman archeological sites, Roman Vindolanda. Vindolanda is the home of the recently refurbsihed onsite museum which provides a stunning look at all of the objects that have been found during the course of the excavation of the site. There are even live excavations every year and a recently opened gallery. For more information on Roman Vindolanda, please visit here.
