Part of Hadrian's Wall repaired

A section of Hadrian’s Wall has been repaired thanks to funding made available through the Higher Level Stewardship scheme administered by Natural England.

The repair which is on part of Hadrian’s Wall between the impressive Roman fort remains at Great Chesters and Housesteads, provides protection for both the Roman remains of the Wall and early conservation work carried out by John Clayton in the 19th century. As a reminder of his work this section is still known today as the ‘Clayton Wall’.
