Aldborough Roman Site and Aldborough Manor Gardens

Afternoon visit


The village stands on the site of the Roman Town of Isurium Brigantum, a key administrative centre in the Roman occupation of the north. The long history of this fascinating landscape, owned by the Lawson-Tancred family since 1832, with shared English Heritage guardianship today, is still unfolding and provided the background to a delightful site visit.  This included a tour of the Roman site and a talk about the newly developed Roman Garden followed by a visit to Sir Andrew Lawson-Trancred’s private garden and refreshments.

A full illustrated report will be available shortly
