High Cross, the Roman Centre of England
High Cross, the Roman Centre of England
Situated at the junction of 2 important Roman Roads, Watling Street (A5) and The Fosse Way, this monument was erected in 1712 and struck by lightning in 1791. The Latin inscription translates as 'If Traveller, you seek for the footsteps of the ancient Romans, here you may behold them, for here their most celebrated ways, crossing each other, extend to the utmost bourne' This is just a few yards away from the Leicestershire Round section of the Fosse Way and is situated in somebody's back garden!
