Overview

Explore the earth turfed ramparts, curved entrances of these Roman marching camps whilst taking in the lofty views of the National Park.To hear first hand experiences of life on campaign and to see reconstructions of Romans camps we recommend you download the free 'Roman walk' App via WiFi from our website before you visit or directly from App store or Google Play. How do I get there Please refer to the website for detailed directions and public transport options. Distance/TerrainThe total length of the route is 4 miles/6.5 km (return). You will start out along a track, which can be very wet at any time of year, and will also venture off road and across and boggy moorland – waterproof footwear with a good grip is recommended. The route is fairly flat with one short climb up to the summit of the Marching camp (the highest point) at 412 m/1352 ft.WeatherEven when it’s dry and warm when you set out, weather conditions can change quickly in the hills and become wet and cold. Be sure to look at the checklist on the App when packing your packs. Mobile signalYou can’t reply on getting mobile phone coverage along the route. Remember to tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Enjoy your adventure!

We've been visiting and staying in the area every few years for twenty five years and have noted the Roman camps and forts on the map but never found the time to make the walk. At long last we've done it. A glorious day made...More

This is an easy walk along a good track although it can be flooded in places after rain but you can step around this. Great walk for dogs too, we saw no sheep. Without downloading the app beforehand, you wouldn't necessarily know what was here...More
