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.
