Bury New Road follows the route of a Roman road than ran from Mamucium (Manchester) to Bremetenacum Veteranorum (Ribchester). John Just, an antiquary, drew a plan of the route based on the work of the Ordnance Survey, which he published in 1842.
In Lower Broughton, a 'camp' was though to be situated at the junction of Castle Street and Bury New Road. Its proximity to the road led to speculation that it too might be Roman, but this determination is questionable, since no plan of the monument survives.
