What is it?

Thirty year vision for the future of the Antonine Wall

A new five year plan for the Antonine Wall World Heritage Site has been launched providing a framework for the management, conservation, promotion and interpretation of the Wall from 2014-19.

The Vision

The plan initially sets out a 30 year vision for the site which will build upon the significant progress that has been made to protect and promote it since nomination as a World Heritage Site in 2008. As well as ensuring that the Antonine Wall is suitably managed to safeguard its Outstanding Universal Value, this seeks to establish the Wall as a world class visitor experience and a focus to realise sustainable benefits economically, socially and environmentally for locals and visitors alike.

From this vision, a number of shorter term goals for the next five years are drawn out. These include: strengthening local, national and international partnerships; increasing the provision of digital resources, including a new website; improving signage, paths and interpretation and strengthening links between museum collections and physical sites.


The Partners who deliver the Management Plan - Historic Environment Scotland (HES), East Dunbartonshire Council, Falkirk Council, Glasgow City Council, North Lanarkshire Council and West Dunbartonshire Council - have been working jointly to deliver collaborative projects but also individually to ensure the social, cultural and economic potential of the Wall is realised in their local areas.
