These photos are from just outside the town of Drumburgh, along the most western section of Hadrian’s Wall. In the medieval period, Drumburgh was a prime location for the English to look out for regular waves of Scottish raiders thanks to its flat, marshy lands, fortified farmhouse, and views of the Scottish borders.
