Dere Street at Vinovia ( Bishop Auckland)


Dere Street , sometimes called Watling Street, was a Roman Road which ran between Eboracum ( modern day York) to the Eastern end of the Antonine Wall in Scotland.
Dere Street crossed the River Wear in County Durham at the Roman fort of Vinovia near present-day Bishop Auckland. Part of the original road, now over 1800 years old, is still visible and can be seen in this photo behind the sign.
