Akeman Street (Roman Road), Kirtlington
Akeman Street (Roman Road), Kirtlington
This view of Akeman Street faces East and towards the direction of nearby Bicester. This roman road has stood the test of time, remaining in superb condition despite it's frequent use. Like most roman roads, Akeman Street is dead straight all the way to Chesterton. A long stone wall borders the grounds of Kirtlington Polo Park, also shown here. Beyond the T junction with the A4095 just behind the camera here, Akeman Street (or the buried ruins of) continues straight in a WSW direction towards Sturdy's Castle.
