Mining Institute - Hadrian's Wall

PS. If they left it visible they could have yet another Hadrian's Tipi over the top.
As did I, these snaps taken yesterday,. 5th October 2017.

Got yacking to Simon Brooks from the Mining Institute and did ask about any plans to have Hadrian's Wall exposed to public view. I did recall somewhere along the line that a proposal to have a glass sheet placed over it had been put forward. He said that due to ground moisture and resultant condensation that idea had been placed on the back burner. To put a display type scenario into place would involve some expensive kit to deal with the potential condensation. This was the same situation at Coopers Studio's when the tour at HOD's mentioned the exact same problem with the Wall at that site.

On the matter of the alignment of the Wall, it heads to a point underneath Stephenson's Monument. During the co0nstruction of the monument an archaeological dig was undertaken but the results were never written up.

Latest Roman bath-house treasures show site is of national significance, says expert



Last-minute discoveries unearthed during an archaeological dig at Carlisle Cricket Club show the site is of national significance, says an expert.

Volunteers and archaeologists were left stunned as the last day of the project this week saw them uncover a fantastically preserved series of bath-house drains and an inscription stone bearing the name of elite Roman cavalry unit once based at nearby Stanwix.

The bath-house building found in the grounds of Carlisle Cricket Club was used by ala Petriana, the 1,000-strong unit that patrolled Hadrian's Wall.

“This site has just been stunning,” said Frank Giecco, from the Wardell Armstrong archaeology firm which supervised the dig, helped by volunteers.

“As the dig was coming to an end, we found one of the main drains that came out of the bath-house itself and the quality of the building is beautiful. We also found a tiny bit of a road, with huge kerbstones and cobbles.

More on the Roman Cricket Pavilion from the Cumberland News:

"Laser scan gives fascinating 3D view of Carlisle's rediscovered Roman bath-house



Fans of Carlisle's most recent archaeological dig are being given a unique insight into how the Roman bathhouse there once looked.

The fantastically preserved building found beneath Carlisle Cricket Club has included walls, floors, and complete drainage systems, along with numerous artefacts such as coins and jewellery.

The Penrith based business consultancy firm Commendium has now carried out a high-tech 3D laser scan of the site, giving a bird's eye view of its structures.

Commendium chief executive Richard Walters said: "The scan at Carlisle presented new challenges in order to capture the intricate details of the Roman engineering.

"However, LIDAR [the kind of scanner used] proved up to the task again allowing a very high quality 3D model of the site to be constructed.”

Mr Walters spent a day scanning the site, adjacent to Eden Bridge."

This from the News & Star,--

History of the Romans brought to life at The Beacon



Creating artefacts and dressing up in traditional costumes has brought the rich history of the Roman times alive for youngsters.

Children are delving into the area's past and learning about the Roman Empire at workshops held at The Beacon Museum in Whitehaven.

They created mosaic tiles at craft sessions yesterday (Monday) and also had enjoyed a variety of interactive learning.

Numerous workshops are taking place this week where children can make their own clay Roman artefacts.

The sessions coincide with the Gladiators: A cemetery of secrets exhibition which is on show at the museum.

Mining Institute - Hadrian's Wall

Further to my photographs of 5th October 2017 @ https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=6297 I paid another visit on 22nd October 2017 to take some images of the further excavations. It is expected that the holes will be filled in within the next few days.

The notice on the railings of the Mining Institute reads:
Quote:
EXCAVATIONS AT THE MINING INSTITUTE
1952 & 2017

In 1952 the distinguished local archaeologist F. G. Simpson excavated two trenches in front of the Mining Institute with the aim of finding the exact line of Hadrian’s Wall, which was known to come down Westgate Road.

The black and white photograph shows the stretch of the Roman Wall which he discovered, consisting of a thin footing course and then the first main offset course above. At the far end of the trench one stone forming part of the wall core, can be seen.

In 2017 proposed improvements to the Mining Institute, which include the installation of service access from the basement to street level, have provided the opportunity to re-examine Hadrian’s Wall at this point and see if there are any surviving Roman remains behind the Wall itself.

The footings and first course of Hadrian’s Wall can again be seen at the bottom of the 1952 excavation trench, which has been emptied out. Overlying the Roman Wall remains, and running roughly north-south (but cut by the 1952 excavation) are the foundations, brick flooring and one facing stone of a rear range of Westmorland House. This range is thought to have been built in the 17th century. It can be seen in C19 prints – a gabled building with dormer windows standing end-on to Westgate Road next to the Lit & Phil Building. The main range of the house dated back to the 14th century, and lay further south, on a parallel alignment with Westgate Road, under the present Mining Institute. However, the thickness of the wall exposed here suggests that the later, C17 range may also have incorporated an earlier, medieval wall

Visitor milestone for Northumberland’s £14.8m National Park centre

Visitor milestone for Northumberland’s £14.8m National Park centre
Richard Bell 25 October 2017



Northumberland National Park Authority’s multi-million pound visitor centre and youth hostel on Hadrian’s Wall is celebrating a five-digit visitor milestone just months after opening.

The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre saw more than 71k visitors in August and September – nearly half the forecast visitor numbers for an average year. The £14.8m scheme, which launched on July 29, also welcomed over 2,000 guests to its 86-bed youth hostel.

Named after the nearby Great Whin Sill, the centre is the result of a partnership between Northumberland National Park, Youth Hostels Association (England & Wales) and the Heritage Lottery Fund, which supported the development with a £7.8m grant. The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre houses fixed and temporary exhibitions, event spaces, a 90-seater café, gift shop and accommodation.

Northumberland National Park Authority chief exec Tony Gates said: “The centre has been transformational for us. It has been a very successful start with extremely positive visitor feedback. When we opened at the height of the holidays we welcomed lots of families and since the new school year started the profile of our visitors has changed but we have remained busy.” He continued: “Now we are starting to see different patterns of visitors using the building including university students, school children and a large proportion of international visitors which is very pleasing. As this is our opening period we fully expected to be busy, and whilst our performance is ahead of target, it will be interesting to see how visitor patterns work out across the year.”

And even more news about the Carlisle Cricket Club's new bathhouse, which is apparently getting bigger, what was thought to be an external wall actually being internal!

From The News and Star:

"Roman bathhouse looks ‘monumental’



The potential scale of an ancient Roman bathhouse in Carlisle continues to grow.

Archaeologists uncovering the site at Carlisle Cricket Club have found yet another room to explore, suggesting its scale is bigger than other bathhouses around the country.

One of the walls originally thought to be an external wall, is now believed to be an internal part of the stone structure.

Site supervisor Kevin Mounsey, of archaeology contractor Wardell Armstrong, thinks the site could be "monumental".

He helped excavate Cockermouth's Roman bathhouse and commenting on the site in Carlisle he said: "I think it has been a much bigger bathhouse than you would have normally got.

"These walls are much more substantial. Slowly we are getting to see more of the layout of it and the potential significance of it."

Experts already believed the site, which would have been a regular meeting place for the soldiers from the elite, Stanwix-based Petriana cavalry regiment, was built on a grand scale."

Special delivery for Hadrian's Wall as 35 tonnes of stone is helicoptered in

From today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...ll-35-13881945
Special delivery for Hadrian's Wall as 35 tonnes of stone is helicoptered in
Mike Kelly 9 November 2017



A helicopter drop with a difference has taken place to help preserve perhaps the North East’s most globally famous site.

Hadrian’s Wall, which stretches 73 miles from the River Tyne to the Solway Firth, attracts tens of thousands of tourists and walkers each year. The popularity of the World Heritage Site with visitors, as well as the wind and the rain, has resulted in considerable wear and tear to it. Some of the footpath along it has eroded so much it has led to a scar so deep that the its original foundation stones have been exposed.

The National Trust, which owns and is responsible for six miles of the wall from Sewingshields to Cawfields, called in helicopter support to help them begin the repair of it. Its general manager at Hadrian’s Wall, Andrew Poad, said: “We have a team of dedicated archaeological volunteers who monitor all our sites and record it on a data base. It was flashing red here and got to the point of damaging the footings meaning it was time for step in and do something about it.”

Over the course of just an hour and a half, the helicopter transported 35 tonnes of stone which will be used over the next month to install 78 metres - 250ft - of stone path at Caw Gap. To make the new path, a trench (called a tray) is excavated along the line of the pathway. The larger stones are then arranged so that they fit together and are partially buried in the ground, ensuring stability. Smaller stones and earth are then wedged into any gaps to help lock the larger stones into place. In time, vegetation will grow around the path, helping it blend into its surroundings. The stone used is whinstone, and was locally sourced from farms in the surrounding area. Due to the historical importance of the site, an archaeologist will be onsite whenever digging for the new path is carried out.

According to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions, Housesteads fort alone attracts more than 100,000 visitors a year while a new £14.8 million visitor centre which opened at Once Brewed, near Hexham, in July was expected to bring in a further 100,000 visitors a year.

Mining Institute - Hadrian's Wall - 4th December 2017

Passed the dig this morning, 4th Decembewr 2017 and was surprised to see that it still appears to be open. My information back in October from a reliable source was that it was to be closed at the end of the month. https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=225

Hadrian’s Wall and Great Wall of China to sign unique agreement as Minister launches new heritage strategy

Hadrian’s Wall and Great Wall of China to sign unique agreement as Minister launches new heritage strategy
5 December 2017

Hadrian’s Wall and The Great Wall of China will sign a unique collaboration agreement to increase the historical and cultural understanding of the two sites, Heritage Minister John Glen announced today as he set out his priorities for heritage.

Representatives from the two World Heritage Sites will work together to examine the challenges and opportunities of managing large and complex archaeological remains and explore the potential tourism growth in both countries.The agreement - the first of its kind - was announced by John Glen as he launched his framework for the growth of the heritage sector. The Heritage Statement outlines how he wants to strengthen the sector, through regeneration and placemaking, skills and environment and how it will contribute to an outward-looking global Britain.

Measures in the statement include:
* Launching a new Heritage Council, chaired by the Minister, to emphasise the value of the historic environment, build consensus and ensure greater coordination.
* A new commemorative scheme to be rolled out across England to mark and celebrate the events, people and places that have shaped local communities.
* Exploring options to strengthen interim protection measures and reduce the risk of damage or destruction to sites while they are being considered for listing.
* Working with Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund to support the digitisation of historic environment records and heritage archives to help councils make informed planning decisions and increase public appreciation for their local heritage.

Heritage Minister John Glen said: "The Wall to Wall Collaboration is the perfect example of how heritage can be used to strengthen international partnerships, grow tourism and build a truly global Britain. Today I am setting out how we will continue to make the case for heritage, and showcase the benefits it brings to our economy, our communities and our quality of life."

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive of Historic England, said: "The Minister has reaffirmed the importance of our heritage to creating great places, to the economy, to communities and to our wellbeing. We look forward to delivering a new place-marker scheme to enable local communities to identify, mark and celebrate the events, people and places that are important to them along with eight new Heritage Action Zones which will help to revive towns and cities that are rich in heritage. I also look forward to a fruitful collaboration between Historic England and the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage with the signing of the Wall to Wall agreement."

The Wall to Wall Collaboration is part of the People to People Dialogue - a cultural exchange between China and the UK taking place in London this week. The initiative arose from the UK-China Cultural Heritage High Level Dialogue, held in Beijing and Xi’an in February 2017, when the conservation of the two Walls was one of the key topics. Historic England and Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage, which manages the Great Wall, will sign the agreement on Thursday. They will hold a seminar in Newcastle next year - the first step in a wider programme of collaboration between the two sites.

Hadrian's Wall: Archaeology and History at the Limit of Rome's Empire

Hadrian's Wall: Archaeology and History at the Limit of Rome's Empire
by Nick Hodgson
ISBN: 9780719818158
PUBLISHED (THIS EDITION): 21/07/2017
PAGES: 224
BINDING: Hardback
SIZE: 246x189 mm
INSIDE: 60 colour photographs 30 black & white photographs 10 Maps



Built around AD122, Hadrian's Wall was guarded by the Roman army for over three centuries and has left an indelible mark on the landscape of northern Britain. It was a wonder of the ancient world and is a World Heritage Site. Written by a leading archaeologist who has excavated widely on the Wall, this is an authoritative yet accessible treatment of the archaeological evidence. The book explains why the expansion of the Roman empire ground to a halt in remote northern Britain, how the Wall came to be built and the purpose it was intended to serve. It is not a guidebook to the remains, but an introduction to the Wall and the soldiers and civilians, men, women and children, who once peopled the abandoned ruins visited by tourists today.

More flood recovery news, this time about the Hadrian's Wall Path alongside the River Eden in Carlisle. The accompanying picture is not the most picturesque section of the walk around the Sheepmount area, being the point where the West Coast Mainline passes overhead, but it does show the work done quite nicely.

From Cumbria Crack

Quote:
Hadrian’s Wall Path reopens in Carlisle



The Hadrian’s Wall path, the popular National Trail that follows the bank of the River Eden through Carlisle recently re-opened following extensive repairs after damage suffered during Storm Desmond.

The storm affected a one and a quarter mile section of the trail washing away river banks, damaging surfacing, retaining walls and steps. The repair has involved a joint approach due to the extent of the damage between Cumbria County Council, Carlisle City Council and Hadrian’s Wall Path Rangers.

Carlisle City Council’s main focus has been the reinstatement of the river bank through the Sheepmount sports stadium area where the river burst its bank, washing away a large section of the flood bank and damaging buildings, surfacing and infrastructure.

Cumbria County Council, funded through the Cumbria Countryside Access Fund as part of the Rural Payments Agency’s ‘Rural Development Programme for England’ has under taken a number of schemes to complete the repairs.

Working with contractors and the Hadrian’s Wall Path Rangers, works have involved repairing a revetment wall, improving drainage, replacing damaged steps and resurfacing a half-mile section of the path along the flood bank to the west of the Sheepmount.
