Chester-le-Street in Roman Times



There was a Roman fort at Chester-le-Street from around the second century AD until about 410 AD. The earliest fort was turf and timber,and was found under the later fort in a recent excavation. An inscription stone dated 216 AD is dispayed in a museum next to the parish church. The Roman Fort was to the east of Front Street. The parish church was later built in the middle of the fort. Middle Chare leads from the old Roman road (now Front Street) to the site of the fort and the parish church.
