Old Kilpatrick Roman Fort (Antonine Wall)

Old Kilpatrick Roman Fort (Antonine Wall)


Old Kilpatrick, United Kingdom (GB)
The western end of the Antonine Wall was built by the Romans across what is now known as the Central Belt of modern-day Scotland. The wall was 63 kilometres (39 miles), was about 3 metres (10 feet) high and 5 metres (16 feet) wide. Construction began in AD 142 and took 12 years to complete.

The western end of the wall was marked by a fort in Old Kilpatrick which overlooked the River Clyde. Nothing remains of the fort today as modern buildings and roads have been built over the site.
