Stanegate Fort

The Stanegate ("stone road") was an important Roman road, built before Hadrian's Wall, which linked forts at Carlisle (Luguvalium) and Corbridge (Corstopitum). It became the northern frontier of Roman empire in Britain until Hadrian's Wall was built just north of it. It had forts at one-day marching intervals (14 Roman miles or modern 13 miles (21 km)).
