Brige is mentioned in the twelfth and fifteenth itinerary of Antonine as an intermediate station, between Venta Belgarum, and Sorviodunum. Quoting Brayley: "Camden supposes [it] to be indicated by the name of BROUGHTON, (Borough-town) a small village, about one mile to the the north of the Roman Road. Salmon places this station on a hill near Broughton, observing, that the eminiense must have been the site of the fortress; and Mr. Gale, in a manuscript note, quoted in Gough's Camden, says, that in the year 1719, he saw very large banks, the remains of this town, in a wood near Broughton, in the way to Salisbury".
