Clearly a Roman route when you look at it in context on the maps, this is part of the Via Devana (The Chester Road) that was built for military purposes from Colchester to Deva. The nearest fort to the south was Pennocrucium near Penkridge, whilst the map suggests there is/was another to the northwest near 'Camp Farm' at Ellerton. That would probably be a reasonable day's march.
