FOUNDATIONS OF A ROMAN BRIDGE WHICH CROSSED WHAT ONCE WAS THE COURSE OF THE TYNE

FOUNDATIONS OF A ROMAN BRIDGE WHICH CROSSED WHAT ONCE WAS THE COURSE OF THE TYNE

In the park of Chesters, near Chollerford in Northumberland, are the remains of the town of Cilurnum, and in the lodge is a good collection of "finds" from the neighbourhood of Hadrian's Wall. Just across the Tyne, which flows close by, is the abutment of a bridge which once led over the river to the town. But since those days the Tyne has changed its course, leaving the bridge to one side. This impressive relic is in a district particularly full of reminders of the great nation which controlled Britain for four hundred years.
