The view of Hadrian's Wall east of the fort

Barracks on the right, north gate on the left

From the barracks we walk back to the north wall. These two photographs show the view along Hadrian's Wall looking east from the fort. The lower picture shows clearly a small depression in the ground, the remains of a Roman quarry, possibly used for stone for the construction of the fort. You can also just make out Knag Burn gate, constructed in the third century as an alternative means of access after the north gate of the fort fell into disuse.
