Chesters Roman Fort
Chesters Roman Fort Review
In a wooded valley on the banks of the North Tyne River, this cavalry fort was known as Cilurnum in Roman times, when it protected the point where Hadrian's Wall crossed the river. Although the site cannot compete with Housesteads for its setting, the museum holds a fascinating collection of Roman artifacts, including statues of river and water gods, altars, milestones, iron tools, weapons, and jewelry. The military bathhouse by the river is supposedly the best-preserved Roman structure of its kind in the British Isles. The fort is 4 miles north of Hexham.
