Situated just below the crest of the Hard Knott pass is the remarkable remains of a Roman Fort. (Grid Ref NY218015) Today the ruins are easily accessible despite being situated in a bleak and unhospitable location. The information boards are included in the image gallery, not in high-resolution but simply to interpret the location.
