Hadrian's Wall

Hob Uid: 11410
Location :
Cumbria
Carlisle
Stanwix Rural
Grid Ref : NY4315059740
Summary : A section of Hadrian's Wall, believed originally to be the probable site of milecastle 63. The location was indicated by geophysical survey in 1980, however, evaluation work in 2000 clearly showed that the milecastle lies under the track in the field immediately to the south. A section of Hadrian's Wall was found at this location, and is in all likelihood what was originally identified during the geophysical survey.
More information : (NY 431 597) MC63 (NAT) (1)

(Area NY 431 597) The presumed site of Milecastle 63 (Walby West) is 500 yards north east of the point where the Vallum shaves close to the Wall. (2)

No visible remains. (3)

MacLauchlan's location (2a) for the milecastle differs from that strongly suggested by a geophysical survey at NY 4315 5974. (4-4a)

No sign of a milecastle was seen on available air photographs. (6)

The site was investigated as part of the Hadrian's Wall Milecastles Project. A section of Hadrian's Wall, believed originally to be the probable site of milecastle 63. The location was indicated by geophysical survey in 1980, however, evaluation work in 2000 clearly showed that the milecastle lies under the track in the field immediately to the south. A section of Hadrian's Wall was found at this location, and is in all likelihood what was originally identified during the geophysical survey. (7-8)
