Hadrian’s Wall – Milecastle 41 – Melkridge

Roman Mile Castle in Hexham

The mile fort stood east of the Caw Gap. It was examined in 1946 and presumably it belonged to short-axis type I. It was probably also rebuilt once during its period of use. It was once built over by a cottage house. The building materials for the house came mainly from the walls of the fort. Therefore only a 0.5 m to 1.2 m high rise in the ground and holes dug by predatory graves can be seen of the fortification. A slight depression marks the northeast corner.
