Lurg MoorFortletNS295737The Roman fortlet on Lurg Moor, which was probably built in the mid-2nd century AD (R W Feachem 1952) was first observed on a National Survey air photograph in 1952. Measuring 160ft by 140ft overall, its E and W sides are well-preserved, the ramparts being 2 1/2ft high and the ditch 3 1/2ft deep. A causeway, about 15ft wide, runs S from the S gate for over 100yds (JRS 1953) (Newall gives the length as 1/4 mile, visible in part as a hollow way).About a dozen fragments of Antonine (A S Robertson 1966) pottery were found by Newall at NS 295 736, immediately SW of the fortlet.

Milecastle 79 Milecastle NY23596224Milecastle 79 is an extension of Hadrians Wall situated to the west of the village of Port Carlisle on the southern shores of the Solway Forth. The site is on slightly raised ground, but there is no surface trace of the milecastle. Excavations were conducted in 1949 & 1999. Originally as part of the Turf Wall it was a turf and timber structure measuring internally 14.9 metres west-east and 12.5 metres north-south built on a 1.5 metre high artificial platform. This structure was replaced in the late 2nd century by a square stone structure measuring 17.7 metres internally. There is evidence for a timber framed building in the eastern half of the stone milecastle.
AbererbwllFortletSN84944152An earthwork surviving to a height of 0.2m, 85m square, with rounded corners, is thought to be a Roman fortlet occupying a site midway between the Llandovery and Caerau forts.
BlaenosSmall Fort/FortletSN754342Situated c. 1.7 km. south-west of Llandovery fort, there is debate over the provenance of this site, it being variously perceived as a practice camp and a fortlet. Several other sites identified as practice camps exist in the vicinity of the fort. (Leslie, 1995)
IdeFortletSX885889Defensive ditches of a Roman fortlet or signal station are visible during dry summer conditions as a cropmark. Geophysical survey shows inner & outer ditches (square, 35m & 95m across).
FileySignal StationTA1281 Remains of fourth century signal station and courtyard are visible in the cliff face. It measured c50m across with a central stone and clay square tower 14m across. A defensive ditch appears to cross the headland rather than enclosing the site. In addition there is a ~7th century 1.8m high rampart to the East. Site investigated in 1857, 1923/29 and again by York Archaeological Trust in 1993/4.
Brownrigg MilecastleNY 0609 3920Tower 21B was part of Hadrian wall and was located on the seaward slope of Brown Rigg hill, but is not now visible above ground. Two courses of stone remain below ground and crop marks appear on aerial photographs. First recorded on RAF aerial photograph in 1946, and investigated by RL Bellhouse in 1962 excavated by him in 1966.
brownhart_lawFortletNT 7904 0964In 1945 aerial survey by J K St Joseph of Cambridge University recorded an earthwork next to the Roman Road known as Dere Street. Sub-rectangular on plan, with turf ramparts and a defensive double ditch on three sides, it is a well-preserved example of a small Roman fortlet, used for observing and policing the traffic along the road.
