Archaeologists plan to protect Ambleside Roman fort
Experts are planning to record and protect exposed Roman masonry at a fort in south Cumbria.
The work on Ambleside Roman fort at Waterhead, is being undertaken by the National Trust, with the help of volunteer archaeologists.
Masons will remove the turf capping from the low walls of the fort, rake out earth, then mix and apply lime mortar to create a hard wearing cap.
The work is part of a wider scheme called "Romans by the River"....
