If you’re free on Sunday and looking for some Roman malarkey!
Looking for another free guided walk idea this Sunday afternoon, 19 September? The well-known and engaging Geoff Bailey, district archaeologist at Falkirk Heritage Falkirk Community Trust, has been in touch for help to publicise a walk he is leading on The Antonine Wall at Rough Castle Roman Fort. Geoff is one of the foremost authorities on the Wall and on so many other aspects of our local history and built heritage.
Walk from Lock 16 starting at the Union Inn to Rough Castle, returning via the woodland walk to the Falkirk Wheel and then along the towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The Wall at Watling Lodge is well preserved and the fort is the best surviving earthwork on the frontier. Guide: Geoff Bailey. Meet at 2pm, no booking required: starting-point is Union Inn, Lock 16, Camelon FK1 4QU.
The date marks the birthday of the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius who commissioned the Wall, and forms part of the Falkirk area's Roman week.
