Name:Roman Road between Appleton and Stretton - North Cheshire Ridge Roman Road


This section of Roman road between Appleton and Stretton is a Scheduled Monument. It was excavated by Lymm and District History Society in 1968 when tracing the line of the road from the Lymm intersection of the M6 westwards. The road has a minimum width of 33ft, with a gravel surface underlain by up to 9 inches of sub-angular stones set in soft sand. The area is now covered by car park for a village hall, but the line of the ditch is still visible to the SW of the scheduled area and the agger (road embankment) can be seen continuing under the farm buildings.
