The Roman Wall

A Tale inspired by the re-constructed Roman fort at Manchester’s Urban Heritage Park – Castlefield.

Ave! Dear old Friend!

Welcome, sit down.

Rest your feet for a while in our Garrison Town.

You’ve arrived at Mamuncium

Our “Castle – in – the – Field”

In a place, where we Romans

Don’t often yield.

We have a great legion,

Five hundred men strong

to service the Emperor Hadrian’s wall

which in truth , that’s quite long

And when sun’s down we head off to Deva

to go and have fun for the night

Relaxing after a hard days soldering

watching the gladiators fight.
