Wall Mile 2

It is now time to cross the main road, so follow the railings along until you reach the gap near the car repair shop and the pedestrian crossing, which takes you under the Metro bridge. Follow the pavement to the east, past the garage, and cross again to near the car park outside the fast food outlet. Now turn towards the small roundabout outside Morrison's and then follow the pavement round to the right and you are on Shields Road and that is directly on the line of the Wall. As before, the road itself follows the ditch and the curtain wall is just behind the shop frontages. After about 500m, on the right-hand side, the shop frontages give way to an open plaza and there, for your delight, are the foundations of the curtain wall and small metal studs marking the location of yet more berm pits.
