Turret 36b (Bardon Mill)

This small Roman tower on Hadrian's Wall was demolished when the larger Roman fort of Housesteads was built. Small towers like this would have sheltered Roman soldiers, and given them a good view over the surrounding countryside. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
