It's an open area with stone foundations that are ruins of the ancient roman city. There's not a ton of stuff there, but it is cool to walk around the ruins and imagine the romans walking there 2000 years ago. Parking is very easy, the...More

Wall roman site is good for a quick visit. There isn't much there but its nice seeing the ruins that are so old. There are information plaques around telling you about the place. I would say you would average about a 20 minute stay here....More

Located just off the A5, 2 miles out of Lichfield, this is well worth a quick stop. The Roman remains are nicely preserved in a field in the centre of the village. There are information boards which interpret what you are seeing. The ground is...More
