Rather interesting Hexham facts
Did you know that the only Roman milestone in Britain that still stands in its original position is at Chesterholm – Vindolanda - near Hexham? It bears a Latin inscription stating Born for the Benefit of the Republic. The stone is about 100 yards from the Roman settlement. Intriguingly the remains of a great timber palace have been found at the site, dating from about the time of Hadrian’s visit in 122AD, and thought possibly to have housed the emperor and his household.
