Tour of Orchard Fields Roman Fort Malton 22nd July 2017

Saturday 22nd July 2017 11am – 12.30pm, repeated 2pm – 3.30pm

Dr Pete Wilson of Rarey Archaeology will guide two tours of Orchard Fields Roman Fort, Malton.

Much of the defences of the Fort survive as earthworks. The tour will examine the visible earthworks and put the Fort into the wider context of Roman Malton and Norton.

Please note this is a walking tour and the ground is uneven underfoot.


Please meet outside the Old Lodge, Old Maltongate, Malton YO17 7EG. The nearest parking is Wentworth Street Pay and Display, and Orchard Fields is a 5-10 minute walk uphill.

COST – £5 (includes a copy of Roman Malton)


Booking is not essential but it helps Malton Museum to know how many people will be attending. You can do this by:


Phone: 01653 691262 to book your places, you can leave a message and the Museum will return your call.

Call at the Museum in Yorkersgate, Malton; it is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday 10am – 4pm.
