The remains of the Roman fort of Navio are close to Brough. Batham Gate, a Roman road connected Navio with the spa town of Buxton (Latin Aquae Arnemetiae) and, via a now lost route Templebrough on the River Don. Gate means "road" in northern English dialects; the name therefore means "road to the bath town".
