Until recently not many people knew that Hadrian’s Wall ran down the Shields Road in Byker. During the Construction of the new Byker Swimming Pool in 2001, whilst digging the foundations, a section of Hadrians Wall was uncovered. If you look carefully, small circles are visible, representing an early form of barbed wire used to reinforce the wall
