Coventry Road,


The Lunt, a particial reconstruction of a First Century Roman Fort, dates from AD60 and is closely connected with the legendary Boudica. In AD64, it was adapted to become a cavalry training centre and is unique in Briatin as it is the only fort with a Gyrus, a wooden ring for training horses. Visitors are invited to follow in the footsteps of the Roman army at this unique reconstruction of a first century roman fort and museum. The reconstruct Granary includes a museum of Roman life, a model of the fort in AD64 and gift shop. Note: parts of the site are difficult to access by wheelchair users due to uneven ground.
