Modern boards for historic wall
MODERN information boards have been installed to explain the heritage of Colchester’s historic Roman Walls.
The wall which surrounds the town is the oldest and longest-surviving town wall in Britain dating back 2,000 years and stretching for 2,800 metres.
Now visitors to Colchester, as well as the town’s residents, can find out about the wall’s history thanks to the new boards.
