The Lunt Fort is a reconstructed Roman fort. It is located just outside the city boundaries of Coventry, in Warwickshire near the village of Baginton. The site was discovered when large quantities of Roman pottery were discovered in the 1930s. Excavations in the 1960s discovered a sequence of Roman military camps on the site. The fort is notable for the Gyrus, a large circular ring which was used for training horses, and is believed to be unique in Britain. In the early 1970s some walls of the fort were reconstructed upon the original foundations, and the site is open to the public.
