Agricola Bridge, Catterick
Agricola Bridge, Catterick
The A1 Catterick Bypass crosses the River Swale via this bridge near Catterick Racecourse; the Coast-to-Coast walk goes under the road alongside the river thus avoiding the dangerous crossing. The bridge's name reflects the fact that it (along with much of the adjacent racecourse) is on the site of the Roman town of Cataractonium - significant excavations took place when the road was built in 1958-9. Agricola was a Roman commander and Governer of Britain. See LinkExternal link for more information.
