Watling Street used be called the Great Dover Road and stretched from the port of Dover (or Dubris) all the way up to the ancient Roman city of Wroxeter in modern day Shropshire. There are many sections of the ancient Roman Road, which are still known as Watling Street today, through which the old Roman Road passes. At one time the Romans planned to continue the road right up to Hadrian’s Wall, the border with Scotland, somehow this was never completed. Compulsory land purchase was most probably done at the point of short sword or pilum so that was unlikely to have been an issue! – and planning restrictions? Not likely… the Anglo Saxon hoards would be a better bet.
