Stanegate Road

Stanegate Road Ancient Places and/or Civilizations Geography World History

The Stanegate Road - meaning "stone road" in "Old English" - was an important Roman-built road in today's northern England. It is located south of Hadrian's Wall.

Unlike most Roman roads which tend to be straight, Stanegate runs through a natural gap which is formed by the Tyne and Irthing River valleys.  About 38 miles (61 km) long, it connected two important Roman forts:  Coria (Corbridge) on the eastern side and Luguvalium (Carlisle) on the western side.
