Benwell Roman Temple and Vallum Crossing

Benwell Roman Temple and Vallum Crossing is a bit of a surprise located in the middle of a housing estate. You will need to park on the road so please be courteous to the residents.

The Benwell Roman Temple built about AD 178–80 was positioned outside of the Roman Benwell fort, one of the 13 permanent forts along Hadrian’s Wall. The temple was dedicated to a local god, Antenociticus, but today you only have the remains of the small temple.

Just around the corner on Denhill Park road you have Benwell Vallum Crossing, positioned to the south of the fort in line with the south gate, allowing access to the area immediately behind the wall. The Vallum itself was an addition to Hadrian’s Wall, built a short distance behind the Wall, this earthwork, consisting of a ditch and two banks, ran its full length, except between Newcastle and Wallsend.
