Before You Go

At Cawfields is a dramatic stretch of Hadrian's Wall on a steep slope, one of the highest standing sections of the Wall. Within its length there are turrets and an impressive milecastle, which was probably built by the Second Legion.

Before You Go

Access: There is a short steep climb to the site from the car park.

Parking: Cawfields is one of the easiest Hadrian's Wall milecastles to reach by car. There is a Northumberland National Park car park next to the site, not managed by English Heritage.

Facilities: Toilets can be found in the car park.

Please be aware: Farm livestock is likely to be present. 

Drone flying: English Heritage does not permit drone flying from or over sites in our care, except by contractors or partners undertaking flights for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and permissions, and are operating under controlled conditions. Please see our drone filming guidelines for more details, or email our Filming team.

Plan a Great Day Out

Cawfields is located almost six miles away from Housesteads Roman Fort, English Heritage's flagship site on Hadrian's Wall. Here you can stand on the edge of the Roman Empire and marvel at the 360 degree views.

For an extended day out, try the Housesteads Trail that includes Cawfields along with Winshields Wall, Walltown Crags, and Sewingshields Wall.
