Hadrian’s Wall – Milecastle 44 – Allolee
Roman Mile Castle in Brampton, Carlisle
Milecastle 44 (Allolee) was a milecastle on Hadrian’s Wall. The mile fort is about 1.5 kilometers west of Great Chesters ( Aesica ) fort near Alloa Lea Farm. The fortification was almost completely destroyed by stone robbery. All that can be seen are a pair of bricks from the wall facing and an approx. 3.5 m wide raised ground covered with peat. The facility is also visible on aerial photographs. The fort could be assigned to the long-ax type (dimensions: 20.3 m from north-south and 17.0 m from east-west). Only its inner surface has been excavated, but the results have not been published. The substructure of the connection path to Wallstrasse was also recognizable (dimensions: 3.5 m wide and 0.2 m high).
