Architects worked alongside builders to ensure a housing development marked its site’s connection to Roman history.

Anthony Keith Architects, of Gosforth, worked alongside archeologists to mark the significance of the site at Foundry Lane, in Newcastle’s Ouseburn, which runs over buried remains of Hadrian’s Wall.

A rooftop garden at the development, which provides 42 one and two bedroom flats for The Tyne Housing Association, now marks the line of the wall in stone slabs, alongside an information panel.

During construction, builders for the project, Robertsons, also unearthed a trough – subsequently identified as Roman – which is being displayed at the entrance to the building.
