Piercebridge is a village in the county of Durham, some 5 miles west of Darlington. The village overlies a Roman fort built circa 265 where Dere Street, the Roman road from York to Newstead, crossed the River Tees. The fort was occupied until the fifth century and a civilian settlement was established to the east of the fort. The river has changed course and the remains of a Roman bridge over the river lie about a quarter of a mile east of the current bridge. Most of the site of the village is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, with details at: LinkExternal link
