Piercebridge Roman Bridge
If you interested in Roman history why not take a walk to see the remains of Piercebridge Roman Bridge which was built in either the 2rd or 3rd century AD. You’ll see stonework foundations and large masonry blocks that once formed the piers of the bridge, which led to the Piercebridge Roman Fort.
The bridge lies at the south of the River Tees so after you have visited this site, you could go on an historical rural walk through the attractive Piercebridge Village and stop off at the a Roman Fort site along the way. You can spend a few interesting hours here on a dry sunny day whilst enjoying the tranquillity of this sleepy village.
