On 28th September, in atrocious weather, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and Historic England ‘rescued’ the Middleton Roman Milestone from the middle of a field where it had fallen over in 2014 and re-erected it securely in the churchyard at Middleton.

Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (CWAAS) is 150 years old. Its first excavation was of the Low Borrowbridge fort so its 150th Birthday Cake features geophys of Low Borrowbridge Roman Fort conducted by LAS last year. As part of the 150 year programme we held an open evening at Low Borrowbridge for CWAAS members and a display in the nearby Lyon building. Photo Bob Abram.
Jamie has sent the survey results of the drone survey for the whole field. The hillshade shows amazing detail and is available as a pdf – see the Low Borrowbridge page.
