The Mile Stone at Alconbury Hill
The Mile Stone at Alconbury Hill
Showing the contrast of old and new as the old road (Great North Road, previously Ermine Street) is now bypassed by the thundering new A1. The mile stone clearly shows states "London 64 miles, through Huntingdon, Royston and Ware; to London 72 miles through Cambridge. This is the old Ermine Street route and until the 19th century there were two north roads from London that came together at Alconbury.
