Newport Arch

One of the surviving jewels of Roman Britain, Newport Arch is the oldest arch in the UK still actively used by traffic.

The arch is the inner face of the north gate of the Upper Roman City of Lindum Colonia in its 3rd-century form (with medieval additions and modifications to the north).  Part of the connecting wall survives in the nearby Newport Cottage.
