Wheeldale Roman Road

Extensive remains of a road which is generally thought to be Roman, though some authorities believe it to be either Saxon or, possibly, pre-Roman. Reached by a path across a field. The road is composed of very large slabs making up a lightly rounded surface, with no evidence of gutters. It is possible that the road was built to ease troop movements to the coast. Local legend tells that it was built by the giant Wade so that his wife could take her sheep to their pasture more easily.
