Roman soldiers from some of Britain’s best Roman re-enactment groups have joined forces today in a march to Flintshire from Chester City Centre.

Many of the legionnaires are carrying heavy armour and marching packs weighing up to 50kg in a 10 mile sponsored march.

The soldiers set off from Chester at around 10am this morning, Sunday 3rd May on the march which is expected to take four hours.

The aim is to help raise funds to turn a 120 acre disused quarry at Fagl Lane in Hope into a unique first-century environment where visitors will be able to see, smell and experience the past.
