Benwell Roman Temple and Vallum Crossing (Hadrian's Wall)


The remains of a small temple dedicated to the native god 'Antenociticus' stand in the 'vicus' or civilian settlement outside Benwell Fort.
There is a stone-built causeway, where the road from the south crossed the vallum earthwork on its way to Benwell fort.
The apse at the south end contains a statue base, and is flanked by altars.
