The Environment Agency, in partnership with Derby City Council, is planning to develop new flood defences in Derby, which will involve the construction of new embankments along the River Derwent as it flows through Little Chester in
Derbyshire. Situated a short distance to the north of Derby city centre, Little Chester is well-known as the site of a Roman fort (Derventio), whilst significant Romano- British, Anglo-Saxon and medieval deposits have also been discovered in the area.
The new flood defences are likely to take a route across Parker’s Piece (centred on NGR SK 3524 3739), situated between the known sites of the Roman fort and an associated bath house, and Darley Playing Fields (NGR SK 3549 3778), which overlies a significant element of the Roman civilian settlement.
