Birdoswald Roman Fort, Hadrian’s Wall

The photo below shows the part of the Birdoswald Roman Fort in the foreground which is today basically ruins but interesting none the less. In the 1840’s the Birdoswald Estate was purchased by Henry Norman who had a great interest in the fort and its history. He added the tower and porch onto the farmhouse, giving it the appearance of an imposing medieval building.
