PIERCEBRIDGE Roman Remains

PIERCEBRIDGE Roman Remains

Roman Dere Street once crossed the river Tees at the modern village of Piercebridge. The remains of the Romans' first bridge, a little downstream from the current one, can be seen; park in the car park of the George Inn and take a footpath at the far end.  Most of the Roman fort that stood here in the 3rd century is buried under the village, but a portion of the eastern edge and ditch can be seen.  Take a footpath on the northern end of the current bridge.
