Brunton layby (NCC)
Location: N55.024048, W2.126263 Facilities: none
This layby on the eastern carriageway of the A6079 (between its crossroads with the B6318 Military Road and the village of Wall) provides parking for visitors to Brunton Turret, which is in the care of English Heritage.
As ever, be aware that there are car thieves operating, as there are at all of the car parks along the Wall. Stout footwear is unlikely to be necessary to visit either the turret or the bridge unless the ground is damp underfoot, but is advisable if extending your visit to Planetrees.
Zone 4 (2km)
Following the trail south-westwards along the A6079 towards Wall and then up the unclassified road signposted to High Brunton will lead to the important piece of curtain wall at Planetrees (3).
