The Roman Marching Camp and Road at Loups Fell, Tebay

  • Bryn Gethin (a1) and Hugh Toller (a2)
Abstract

A 15.2-ha Roman marching camp has been identified at the northern end of the Lune gorge where the Roman road northwards from Ribchester emerges into the Eden valley and the Cumbrian plain. The road runs here on an alignment that has not been determined before. The camp lies astride the road and faced east. The remains of the camp and the road are described and discussed.
