Wallsend vicus, road
Road Transport Site
MacLauchlan reported that "Remains of two roads down to the mouth of this western valley were found, not very continuous, but nearly parallel to each other, the smaller one of gravel; the larger, and more easterly one, was paved". Bidwell et al. show this running north north-east towards the south corner of the fort from a point north-east of the Ship Inn.
