Turret 44b, Hadrian's Wall (Greenhead)

Turret 44b stands on a crag overlooking one of the Nine Nicks of Thirlwall. It was excavated in 1892 and left uncovered so visitors could see its structure. During this excavation a Roman coin and a centurial stone were found. Today it can still be seen as a standing stone structure, with walls nearly 2m high. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
