Denton Hall Turret (Hadrian's Wall)
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Denton Turret is thought to have been in use on three separate occasions. The first was directly after the building of the Wall, from AD 122-196. The second period of occupation was from 205-295, and the third from 300-367.
Beside the turret is a section of 'broad wall' measuring 65 metres in length. Denton Turret is located directly beside Denton Hall (otherwise known as Bishops House).
