The formal end of Hadrian’s Wall is at Bowness on Solway. This is marked on the western side of the site of the Roman fort by a sign pointing not only to Wallsend (see Segedunum) at the eastern end, but also along the Cumbrian coastal defence system to the Roman fort at Maryport.  A further finger points to Rome (1150 miles).
