Newcastle-Hadrian's Wall-Housesteads Roman Fort-the Wall

Wall going east from the fort.  Not always easy to determine which is Hadrian's Wall as there have been many rock walls built to keep sheep in since Roman times.  Generally speaking, I looked for the thick wall that you could walk on, but that's not always easy to see with distance.

West wall from the fort with outpost.  Closeup of outpost below.

But first, two tourists on the edge of the wall.

People exploring the fort remains.

Outpost with non-Roman wall and the usual meadow maggots.

More new wall and round enclosure that may or may not be Roman.
