...
... The Roman road is easily traced from Ribchester ... to Overborough; afterwards the Roman road goes through Casterton and Middleton, and, as some think, by Borrow-bridge and Orton, to Apulby. Others, and perhaps from better reasons, are of opinion, the road went by Sedbergh, or Sedburgh, [2] over Blewcaster, along Ravenstonedale-street, and through Kirkby-Stephen, to Brough or Burgh. ... Antoninus's tenth Itinerary runs from Glanoventa or Lanchester, in the county of Durham, ... to Glenovento or Draton, in the county of Salop. In various places by the side of this road are high artificial mounts of earth, which were without doubt the stations of centinels, to prevent any insurrections, or being surprised by an enemy: they may be now seen entire at Burton-in-Lons-
[2] ... Borough, or Burgh, from the Greek word burgos, or watch tower.
