Hadrian’s Wall – Milecastle 29 – Low Brunton
Roman Mile Castle in Hexham
Milecastle 29 (Tower Tye) was a milecastle of the Roman Hadrian’s Wall. Its remains exist as a mutilated earth platform accentuated by deep robber-trenches around all sides, and are located beside the B6318 Military Road. Like Milecastles 9, 23, 25, and 51, a ditch has been identified around the Milecastle, and is still visible to a small extent. It has been postulated that this was as a result of the need for drainage on the site.
