DogPeople Says : Ravenglass Roman Bath House

Lottie visited on a walk in June 2012. Substantial sections of wall remain with a couple of information boards about the structure and how it related to the original fort (no standing remains). The site is a short walk from the railway stations with plenty of opportunity to include it in a longer walk.

Key Info:
1/4 mile East of Ravenglass, off minor road leading to A595 (OS Map 96; ref SD 088959). Railway station a short distance away.

Description:
The remains of the bath house of Ravenglass Roman fort, established in AD 130, are among the tallest Roman structures surviving in northern Britain: the walls stand almost 4 metres (13 feet) high. The fort at Ravenglass (whose earthworks can be seen near the bath house) guarded what was probably a useful harbour, and there is evidence that soldiers stationed here served in Hadrian's fleet.

Opening Times:
All year at any reasonable time.

Dog Restrictions:
Dogs on leads are welcome - contact site for any restrictions. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.
