Route record MYO4188 - Roman Road RCHME Road 6

Summary

Linked road 5 with the NW gate of the fortress. It probably left Road 5 near to Clifton Croft. 'Concrete' foundations found in 1893 in the Bur Dyke 250ft N of The Avenue may belong to it. In 1954 a drainage ditch that cut the road obliquely 70ft west of St Olave's School was found to have a basis of heavy cobbles and to have been repaired and widened with building rubble. The road reached Bootham opposite Bootham Terrace where it changed alignment to follow the modern road line to the NW gate of the fortress.
