Chester-le-Street - keys to the Past

  • Description

    "The town of Chester-le-Street stands in a valley to the west of the River Wear about five miles to the north of Durham...The Roman fort at Chester-le-Street, known as Concangis, was probably founded in around AD216. Many other Roman forts have been found in the area. A bathhouse with a hypocaust lies to the south and a Roman bridge has been found. Coins and many altars and inscriptions have been discovered. It is likely that as well as the fort, a civilian settlement also grew up in the area...."
