Unfortunately we have no survey of the whole of this route. We would be very grateful if anyone could provide us with one, particularly as there should be another 15 kilometres of Roman road potentially accessible south of this. By following the OS maps, you can make your way along this route from Abington to Moffat, or a little past either town if desired. Abington to Moffat is about 18 miles.

At 34km long, this is a very long section of Roman road. It is very interesting to see that after two thousand years the modern highway linking England with Scotland follows a very similar line.
