On the wall – Plan nears completion for landmark

COMMUNITIES along the Antonine Wall are being encouraged to play their parts in finalising a five-year management plan for the World Heritage Site.

The 12-week consultation, led by Historic Scotland and the five local authorities through which the Wall runs, will encourage interested parties to comment on a draft blueprint. The 60-kilometre Antonine Wall became a World Heritage Site in 2008 and joined the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site, alongside Hadrian’s Wall and the German Limes.
