I’m a fan of things that are older than me

The Roman Wall of St Albans was built between AD 265 and 270 to defend the city of Verulamium. At its peak, it towered at a height of five metres and was topped by a walkway protected by a 1.8 metre parapet. There are several remains still visible on a wander around Verulamium Park.

  1. Fantastic, Debbie 👏 Big fan of old ruins as well; I’ve visited many of the sites on Hadrian’s Wall. My mum actually worked on some of the digs when she was a student 😃


    1. Obviously the wall has stayed the same, but the museum is now much improved.
      When our “normality” returns you’ll have to come over by train and then we can whiz around town and out into the park
