A chain of evenly spaced mileforts were built along the west Cumbrian coast from the end of Hadrian's Wall at Bowness-on-Solway to Ravenglass. The remains of these coastal defences offer a glimpse into what life would have been like for Roman soldier garrisoned here.
Milefort 21 was fully excavated in the 1990s and is a designated World Heritage Site. The site is now open to the public.
