BOWNESS ON SOLWAY 01A - Maia Roman Heritage Signpost
Maia Roman heritage signpost at Bowness on Solway, Cumbria.
This signpost marks the site of the large Roman fort, Maia which was the western terminus of the 73 mile (80 Roman mile) Hadrian's Wall which extended to Wallsend on Tyne on the East Coast. The stonework from the wall and fort was used in the building of the church and local houses. The scottish shores can be seen on the far side of the Solway Firth.
This spot also marks one end of the 84 mile Hadrian's Wall National Trail.
