The site of High Rochester Roman Fort. The Roman place-name was Bremenium. It is a multi-phase site, which originated in the Agricolan period as an outpost fort on Dere Street.

The walls remain on the south, west, and north sides to seven courses in places, and the east gate to impost level. Exterior earthwork defences exist on the south and north sides.
