An important staging post on Watling Street, the Roman military road to north Wales

About this venue


An important staging post on Watling Street, the Roman military road to north Wales. The road network was crucial to the Romans' control over their empire. At staging posts like Wall, weary Roman officials, soldiers and imperial messengers could find lodging for the night and change their horses.
At Wall today you can still see the remains of an inn for travellers and the public baths, with its sequence of cold, warm and hot rooms. The site museum provides a fascinating insight into life here and displays many excavated finds.
