The house of the Fort Commander includes the best example of a Roman military bath suite in Britain. Finds from the excavation of the fort are displayed in the Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle. Vinovia was a Roman fort and settlement situated just over 1 mile (1.6 km) to the north of the town of Bishop Auckland on the banks of the River Wear in County Durham, England. The fort was the site of a hamlet until the late Middle Ages, but the modern-day village of Binchester is about 2 miles (3 km) to the east, near Spennymoor.

The ruins are now known as the Binchester Roman Fort.

Location: 4 miles south west of Spennymoor, off the A688
