Milecastle 42

A Roman soldier named Lucius is said to walk this site. He fell in love with a local woman named Eanfritha but on one visit while he was on duty, she distracted him while her brother scaled the wall and stole goods from their base. The brother became arrogant and his boasting led to him being apprehended - but he spitefully implicated Lucius in his deeds, who tried to kill himself but his attempt failed and he was left incapacitated and in agony. Eanfritha was full of remorse and reconciled with Lucius but he soon died from a infection leaving his loved one feeling destroyed. The ghost of Lucius is said to walk "on a cushion of air" due to the change in the wall level over the centuries.
