Hadrian's Wall given funding for new signage
Posted by Ben Alexander
Hadrian's Wall will soon feature new architectural signage after it was given funding of more than £500,000.
The money totalling £537,185 comes from the SITA Trust and will help to improve access to the site at a number of locations.
Stretching for 150 miles, work began on Hadrian's Wall in AD122 to protect Roman Britain from the Picts.
It measured up at around ten feet wide and 15 feet high, while small forts were also constructed along the wall.
Linda Tuttiett, chief executive of Hadrian's Wall Heritage, said that it was "fantastic news" for the structure that the funding had been given.
"The grant means parts of the central section of Hadrian's Wall, some of which are currently on English Heritage's Heritage at Risk register, can be properly conserved."
Along with new signs, access improvements will also be made, with conservation work beginning in May and hopefully completed by August 2013.
