Watercrook  Westmorland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Watercrook like this:

WATERCROOK, the site of the Roman station Concangium in the S of Westmoreland; on the river Kent, 2 miles S of Kendal. Roman altars, inscriptions, urns, bricks, a bath, coins, and other relics have been found.

The location is the building named as Watercrook on the Ordnance Survey 1:10,560 map of Westmorland of 1862-3, accessible on the site. The Roman site of Concangium is just to the north. Additional information about this locality is available for Natland
