Roman Road on Tatham Fells - Bowland
Roman Road on Tatham Fells - Bowland
This Roman Road was constructed about AD76 I believe. Here we see the Roman Road agger [ridge/mound] as it descends Round Hill to follow the east side of the Hindburn valley through the hamlet of Lowgill a few miles beyond. This ancient road lead from the significant Roman cavalry fort at Ribchester [BREMETENNACVM]approx 17/18 miles back south along its course on the River Ribble. Here it strikes onward almost due north to the fort where Burrow Hall now stands just east of the River Lune. One can imagine in those ancient times supposed lesser mortals having to make way for Caesars Legions of armed might expanding and policing their Empire !
