Hadrian’s Wall – Milecastle 63 – Walby West
Roman Mile Castle in Carlisle
Milecastle 63 (Walby West) was a milecastle on Hadrian’s Wall. The mile fort was located about 800 meters southwest of the hamlet of Walby, Stanwix Rural. There are no visible remains. In 1980 a geophysical survey was carried out near the point where Henry MacLauchlan had already suspected the mile fort. However, a follow-up investigation in 2000 found that the soil anomalies were in fact a section of Hadrian’s Wall. The mile fort is probably a little further south of the investigated location, directly below Hadrian’s Wall hiking trail.
