Abstract:
The evaluation was carried out as part of repairs to a footpath between Froswick and Thornwaite Crag which formed part of the Kentmere Horseshoe and followed the line of the High Street Roman road. The topographic survey revealed that the earthworks in the survey area formed three distinct blocks with those at the far north end, including possible quarries and the two sections delineating the route of the road separated by an area with no surviving earthworks. The road itself was visible as a bank cut into the hillside to form a level terrace. The evaluation identified the road surface in all three trenches, although it was clearly eroded and built largely of gravels and pebbles. In each trench there were additional features related to attempts to keep water and peat from encroaching onto the road, such as a large gravel filled ditch, as found in one trench, or a large bank built of clay and rubble found in another trench.
