The "new" roman Road from Ribchester to Lancaster discovered by David Routledge.

Highways historian David Routledge, who has been studying Roman roads in Lancashire for almost 50 years, is now using the latest technology to help him accurately trace the ancient routes which once crossed parts of Lancashire.

One of his latest “finds” is the precise line of a Roman road linking the Roman military base at Ribchester to north Lancashire.

More details about this road and other Roman routes will be shared at the society’s new year meeting on Wednesday, January 13 at 7.30pm at Garstang United Reformed Church Hall.
