Driving Hadrian’s Wall: the Minor Car Parks XV (Denton Burn)

Denton Burn

Location: 54.982858, -1.686838 Facilities: LIBRARY, SHOPS

There is a small car park attached to Denton Burn library, accessible from the westbound carriageway of the A186 (West Road).

Advice

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 almost certainly unnecessary.

Immediately next to the car park is a short length of curtain wall (1). Continuing eastwards towards the roundabout reveals the smallest of all the consolidated lengths of curtain wall (2) belonging to Hadrian’s Wall (on the forecourt of the petrol station).

Zone 2 (500m)

Heading west and using the pedestrian crossing to negotiate Broadwood Road ultimately leads to the length of curtain wall and turret (3) at Denton Hall.
