Stanegate


The Stanegate ("stone road") was an important Roman road, built before Hadrian's Wall, which linked forts at Carlisle (Luguvalium) and Corbridge (Corstopitum). It became the northern frontier of Roman empire in Britain until Hadrian's Wall was built just north of it. A modern tarmac road taking the name Stanegate runs close in parallel to parts of the Roman road.
