Antonine Wall: Rough Castle

Best-preserved length of rampart and ditch

Antonine Wall: Rough Castle

The best-preserved length of rampart and ditch, together with the earthworks of a fort – the most complete on the Wall – and a short length of military way with quarry pits.

This is the best site to gain an impression of how the frontier and its integral forts worked.
