"Traditional methods" used to preserve Hadrian's Wall

"Hadrian's Wall is under constant pressure from the weather, from visitors, from livestock and other factors, and we need to work hard to protect and to conserve this icon of world heritage," said Bryan Scott, from the Hadrian's Wall Trust about the recent grant to rebuild parts of the wall.

Stonemasons, working by hand and using traditional methods, have begun to rebuild parts of the wall considered at risk. The Hadrian's Wall Trust received a grant of UKĀ£537,185 from the SITA Trust. Work is expected to have been completed by October 2013.
