Hadrian’s Wall – Milecastle 31 – Carrawburgh
Roman Mile Castle in Hexham
Milecastle 31 (Carrawburgh) was a milecastle of the Roman Hadrian’s Wall. Its remains exist as a turf covered platform beside (and partially covered by) the B6318 Military Road, just to the east of Carrawburgh fort (adjoining the car park).
