TOWER 13B

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of tower 13B, part of the Roman frontier defences supporting Hadrian's Wall along the Cumbrian coast. Excavations in 1880 uncovered the remains of the tower. The position of the tower as shown on OS 1:10000 map of 1972 at NY 0964 5015 was confirmed on the ground by R L Belhouse. The situation is on top of a 13m high natural ridge with excellent visibility all round, and the signs of its excavation can still be seen. The tower was visible as a cropmark and photographed from the air in 2006.
