A little history
The community of Wall goes back to Roman times when the Roman army set up a staging post and later a more significant presence in the area. Part of the remains of this are still visible and the site is open to view free of charge every day (except Christmas day) from dawn to dusk. The site is owned by the National Trust and is a Scheduled Monument under the care of English Heritage.
There is also a small site museum, staffed by National Trust volunteers, which contains artefacts from the area. The Museum is open between 11:00am and 4:00pm on the last weekend of each month and on certain bank holidays between March to October inclusive.
