Mystery Ride – START

The ride started at Hunningham Hill Top Farm

 

After leaving the Farm driveway the ‘Ancient Highway’ I travelled along for just 100m was the Fosse Way

The Fosse Way was a major Roman road that traversed Britain from southwest to northeast. It ran from the mouth of the River Axe near Exeter in Devon through Bath and Cirencester then to High Cross (just to the north of Coventry), where it intersected Watling Street, and on to Leicester finally reaching Lincoln (Lindum).

It was probably laid as a military road along the temporary frontier reached in the Roman conquest before ad 47.

In our ‘Cycling Territory’ we come across the the Fosse Way to the south of Wellsbourne, near Chesterton, close to Offchurch, Hunningham Hill, Stretton-on-Dunsmore, Brinklow and Stretton-under Fosse.
