Turret 37b (Bardon Mill)

Turret 37b is located on the crest of Hotbank Crags with wide views in all directions. It survives as a turf-covered platform. The platform measures 6.3m north to south and 10m across and is up to 1.4m high. There is a small enclosure on the east side of the platform which appears to join both the south side of the Wall and the east side of the turret wall. It could therefore be the same date as the Wall and may have served as a small stable. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
