Akeman Street

Akeman Street was a major Roman road in England that linked London to the Fosse Way at Cirencester. Its route passed through various towns and villages including Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted[?], Tring[?], Aylesbury and Bicester[?] before changing direction towards the south-west going past Woodstock and Witney[?] to the north before heading into Cirencester.

Part of the road is still in use today, between London and Bicester. This is called the A41.
