A little history

The community of Wall predates Roman times but a Roman settlement was established around AD 45, initially as a marching camp for the army progressing west into Wales. Subsequently, it grew into a staging post to include a Bath House and Mansio, remains of which are still visible. Free access to the site (a scheduled monument owned by National Trust under the guardianship of English Heritage) is at all reasonable times.
There is a site museum, staffed by volunteers on behalf of English Heritage, containing a varied collection of artefacts found in the locality. The museum is open between 11.00am and 4.00pm generally the middle, last and bank holiday weekends of each month March to October inclusive.
