Ribchester
This ancient riverside village is built on the site of the Roman fort of Bremetennacum. Estimated to have covered six acres of ground, a large portion of the remains lie under the old church and churchyard.

The Roman Museum has recently been extended, and provides interesting displays about Roman life in the area. Many artifacts from this time are on show, including copies of a highly detailed Roman Helmet found in Ribchester by a small boy in 1797. The original is now in the British Museum.

It's one of the district's most popular villages with local shops and amenities, an art gallery and some award winning accommodation and cosy country pubs.
