Today Emily and me plan to visit Goodrich castle:
Reading about it yesterday, I learned that it was built to protect an old Roman road running from Glevum (Gloucester) to Isca (Caerleon), and which had a bridge over the river Wye near the castle.
So I’ve been trying to find out where this Roman road lay. One map I found (below)
showed the road running from Ariconium (Weston-under-Penyard, 5 km east of Ross-on-Wye) to Blestium (Monmouth). Roman roads were usually straight, so my guess is that the road ran something like this:
After Emily and I have discovered the lost Roman bridge today, we’ll visit one of the riverside pubs to recuperate.
