taken 2 years ago, near to Carterway Heads, Northumberland, Great Britain

The original alignment of the A68
The original alignment of the A68
This section of the A68 led right in front of the Manor House Inn, but in now runs a few tens of metres to the right, with an eased curve, and the old road surface is now the Pub car park.

The archaeological interpretation of the levels suggest that this major route was very much narrower on this alignment.
The A68 road

The A68 road, from Darlington to Dalkeith, is an inland alternative to the A1 to reach Edinburgh. It bypasses Corbridge to cross the Tyne, and the northern section is sometimes called "The Carter Bar road", named after the border crossing into Scotland at the Carter Bar.

The section south of Corbridge is mostly the route of the Roman Road "Dere Street".
