Wicker Street, Crosby Ravensworth, Coast to Coast

Wicker Street Roman Road

Wicker Street is a long Roman road that traverses Crosby Ravensworth Fell from south to north, coming from Tebay and leading to an ancient settlement near to Low Dalebanks, just west of Crosby Ravensworth.

The Coast to Coast path crosses it in an area of limestone paving, where there is a prehistoric burial cairn known as Wicker Street Cairn, which is itself quite close to the remains of a Bronze Age stone circle. The cairn is marked by a thin upright wooden post.

A little further to the east of this pavement is the White Hag limestone pavement.

In the aerial image below, Wicker Street Roman road can be seen to the left of the limestone pavements in the centre of the image, running south to north. Between the two sections of pavement a circular formation can be seen, representing Wicker Street cairn. A small Bronze Age stone circle can also be seen at the end of the east south east section off paving, as a tight white circle.
