Description"The fort was one of the defensive structures built along Dere Street, a Roman road running from York to Corbridge and onwards to Melrose. The fort occupies a low mound overlooking the River Rede. It is oblong in shape and measures 450 feet (140 m) north to south, and 400 feet (120 m) east to west, giving an area of just over 4 acres (16,000 m2). It was surrounded by a number of ditches, which can still be seen on the south and west sides. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habitancum" Photo by Russel Wills, 2018.
