Monument Number 947513

Hob Uid: 947513
Location :
Cumbria
Carlisle
Bewcastle
Grid Ref : NY5600074000
Summary : Conjectured site of vicus of Bewcastle Roman fort, suggested by the occurence of building stones and the local topography.
More information : Bewcastle Roman fort (see NY 57 SE 15) and its environs were surveyed
by RCHME in 1984-5. Building stones were recorded along the access
road to Demesne Farm just N of the line of the wall of the fort and a
few more were found 50m to the N of the farm gate. These could
represent traces of a vicus. The topography restricts the possible
position of any vicus to this relatively level area N of the fort and
the narrow shelf to the W. Full survey information is available in
the NMR archive. (1)

The results of the RCHME survey have been published. (2)
