Change and Continuity at Hadrian’s Wall

On Monday of this week it was announced that the Hadrian’s Wall Trust was to close due to inadequate funding. The Trust is a charity that has important responsibilities, including maintenance of the structure of the Roman Wall built almost two thousand years ago to protect what is now northern England from what is now Scotland.

This does not affect the various attractions along the wall such as the Vindolanda fort and its associated Roman Army Museum. Then at the Western end the Senhouse Roman Museum at Maryport has great plans for the future as outlined in an excellent BBC Cumbria article, also this week.
