  • Full Description

    <1> This road corresponds to Margary road numbers 710b and 710c.
    The SMR map depicts the suggested route of a Roman Road entering South Yorkshire from Brough, travelling past the Roman fort at Templeborough, and further east to Doncaster. The stretch of road from the west of Sheffield to Templeborough (710b) is dubious and more likely relates to a medieval/post-medieval pack horse route or similar (see record descriptions of PINs 3974 and 4517). Modern development has prevented confirmation of the presence of a road through Sheffield City.

    Traces of Roman road have been investigated between the forts at Templeborough and Broxtowe (see PIN 1208), whilst another stretch was apparently sectioned at Balby by Doncaster Museum in 1978 (see PIN 1859).

    Sections of a Roman road near Templeborough were identified to the south of the course marked in Margary see PIN 05052.
