“History with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I am a sucker for a bit of history and the well preserved remains of this Roman fort are situated in a stunningly situated on the Hardknott Pass with stunning views down to Eskdale and across to Harter Fell and the Scafell massif. Great spot for a quick picnic!

“A well-worth drive not for the faint-hearted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

This was probably the most fun thing we visited during our stay in Windermere. The drive to the fort follows Wrynose Pass and the Hardknott Pass - we didn't realise quite how steep these were but our car managed it and it was well-worth it to see the fort and the views from the top!

“Excellent - fantastic position”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Hot bath up on the fells! - the Romans knew a thing or two about making life more enjoyable. Really interesting to visit, worth carring on up the Hardkott pass.
