Ribble Bridge where a possible Roman Road would have passed near toRoman Preston

Preston and its surroundings have provided evidence of ancient Roman activity in the area, largely in the form of a Roman road which led to a camp at Walton-le-Dale. It was likely that as well as a camp at Walton le Dale there would have been some sort of settlement north of the Ribble at Preston. It is likely but not comfirmed that a Roman road followed the course of todays A6 from Walton le Dale through Preston to Garstang and Lancaster.
