Blakehope Roman fort and possible temporary camp (Rochester and Byrness)
The earthworks of this Roman fort were first recorded in the mid-19th century. They are difficult to see in places and show up best on aerial photographs, which reveal that medieval ridge and furrow overlies a Roman fort and annexe. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
