Turret 41b on Hadrian's Wall (Haltwhistle)

This turret, known as Turret 41b, stood on Cawfields Crags. It was discovered by excavation in 1912 and survives today as a buried feature. Another excavation in 1967 did not find any trace of the turret. It may have been demolished in the same way as Turret 41a was, when Hadrian's Wall was built across it. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
