Overview

'Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Antonine Wall was the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire. Built on the orders of the Emperor Antoninus Pius in the years following AD 140, it ran for 40 Roman miles (60 km) from modern Bo'ness on the Firth of Forth to Old Kilpatrick on the River Clyde.  Over time, the industrial and commercial heartland of Scotland has grown around it yet, unbelievably, one-third of its total length is still visible today. Archaeological excavations have demonstrated that much of the rest survives well beneath both fields and urban areas.'

Distance (miles)6
Overview

'These were powerful places to stand and surmise, with sunlight slanting across the graves and blackbirds fluttering in the cemetery hedges. Walking back north up the hidden cleft of Sherbrook Valley, with the stream chuckling quietly under its bridges and slopes of birch and pine closing off the valley from the outside world, the mud, blood and slaughter that waited for the young trainees of Brocton Camps seemed utterly inconceivable.'

Category:England
Overview

'Almost 28,000 Pillboxes were built in 1940/41 but now it is estimated only about 20% remain and many of these are in a poor condition. There may only be 1000 left in good condition. Their survival is threatened, even though interest in pillboxes is growing, and many more are likely to disappear. This website is a record of ones I have seen and how you can find them on walks throughout the country.'
