Temple Sowerby Roman Milestone

Just to the north of the Roman road now known as the A66 and southeast of Temple Sowerby is a layby that houses a Roman milestone, one of only 2 such milestones that still stand in their original position. It is over a metre in height and very worn, and as the photograph shows it is now protected by iron railings. There were also several Roman settlements in the area, such as the now destroyed fort at Kirkby by Thorpe.
