An interesting site giving a good idea of the Roman settlement that once stood at Piercebridge. There is informative signage throughout both sites, Bridge and Fort, and the locations of both are quite atmospheric. It is an easy walk from one site to the other.

We stayed at the George Hotel in Piercebridge, where the Roman Bridge is just situated off the main car park. We walked down to it along side the river, which was very pleasant. We took some photos and walked back.

Found by accident on a stroll through the lovely village. We found this to be a very interesting and well tended villa. The information boards were excellent. Well worth a look but don't wear flimsy shoes!

Quite a large area with Notice Boards giving you an insight into Buildings as they were. Within easy walking distance across the bridge from The George Hotel.

This site is right in the middle of the small village next to the Church. Easy access and a lovely spot to view. Quite a lot of the original foundations remain but give you a good idea of the size of the place.
