Hadrian's Wall section to get a facelift

A major reconstruction project for a section of Hadrian's Wall has begun at Great Chesters, near Haltwhistle, Northumberland. The project will spend UKĀ£200,000 to repair an 800m section of the wall.

Those in charge of the project are taking great care to safeguard the local wildlife during the rebuilding. "This section of Hadrian's Wall is a fantastic survival from our Roman past, and one which allows us to see the detail of the original Roman construction work on the wall," said Mike Collins, Hadrian's Wall archaeologist at English Heritage.
