Reflection on site 12
The Roman Road linked the two Roman settlements in Derbyshire; Buxton (Aquae Arnemetiae) and Littlechester (Derventio) just outside Derby. Littlechester was an important fort and Buxton was important for its natural hot and cold water baths.
The stone draws attention to this long stretch of our parish boundary but is also a tribute to the Roman engineers and their straight roads.
But we leave it to the classical scholar to interpret its cryptic meaning!
Or you can guess!
