Attested: RC Navione; milestone A
Where: Roman fort at Brough-on-Noe, Derbyshire, SK 18148272
Name Origin: The modern river name Noe descends from *Navio, an example of *navis ‘river’.
Notes: The surrounding Hope Valley has a bowl shape, a bit like the hold of a ship, which might have attracted a name containing combe, cetel, etc in other parts of the country.
