Interesting and worth a quick look if you are walking Hadrian’s Wall Path. Not really much to see but the signage for Brocolitia Fort where the temple is located has information.

Visited on a cold rainy day and got drenched-but still glad I stopped. The Temple ruins are small, but the essence of the temple itself still remains. If you're visiting Hadrian's Wall and are in the area, it's worth a stop, as this cult was...More

Signposted off "General Wade's Road" the B6318 but its a walk away from the car park. The track has been improved with a walkway. Once inside you can see how the ritual would take place. However the feel of the temple on a lovely sunny...More

This is an easy walk from the car park along the Military Road. The altars (copies of the original) don't show much writing, but have some good carving. The sign for the site is legible (but should be replaced, it's been damaged.) It helps if...More

Interesting temple connected to Hadrian's Wall, peaceful and well preserved. You can still see the God Mithras image and another figure, it gives of a good idea of how it would have looked. People still leave offerings to the God. Nice place.
