History

A history of the Great North Road through the ages.

  • Definitely not just the A1
  • Not just the post road of the 17th and 18th centuries
  • We certainly include the Old North Road via Waltham Cross and Ware
  • And we will travel back at least as far as the Roman Roads - Ermine Street and Dere Street

There’s plenty of history on other pages within this site but those listed here are characterised by their relationship to a particular time rather than to a specific topic.
