Park Road in Tring is a quiet residential street with houses only on the northern side. Fields separate its southern side from the A41 Tring Bypass (formerly the A41(M)). As can be seen, a little further on there are some buildings on this southern side, which are farm buildings, now largely converted to residential properties. It is quite interesting to look at the map of Tring in relation to the Roman road, Akeman Street, which runs WNW/ESE from Aylesbury through Tring towards London. It is clear that the original course of this road used what is now Park Road and Park Street and crossed Tring Park immediately to the south of SP9211 : The Mansion House, Tring (though obviously before that was built). The deviation of the road through Tring's High Street creating a kink in the otherwise straight Roman road. Confusingly, where Park Road becomes Park Street at SP9211 : The Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum, Tring the road joining them back to the High Street at 90 is called "Akeman Street" though it is obvious that this was not its original route.
