Check the Lancashire HER - there are a couple of roads across the Forest of Bowland that appear to have the Roman culverts still running under them. The routes are now country tracks rather than main roads with tarmac and I can't for the life of me remember the Margary numbers.

Subject: [BRITARCH] Roman road culverts in W Dorset
Surprisingly, it seems that some Roman road culverts round Broadwindsor in West Dorset are still hard at work. This interesting in itself, but the existence of a Roman culvert necessarily implies a Roman road above it which may now be invisible beneath tarmac..
There is a short web page at
which has a link to a longer paper at
If anyone has come across anything like this - they're rather hard to find since the culvert entrance and exit are usually in the fields beside the road and invisible from it - I'd be most interested.
