Roman road to Mildenhall
Roman road to Mildenhall
In Roman times, Mildenhall was a sprawling settlement called Cunetio on south bank of the River Kennet LinkExternal link. It stood at the crossroads formed by two major Roman roads: that running E-W from Calleva Atrebatum (Silchester) to Aquae Sulis (Bath), and that running SE-NW from Venta Belgarum (Winchester) to Corinium Dobunnorum (Cirencester). The main Swindon to Marlborough road (A346) follows the course of the latter for much of its length, but where it veers away just past Ogbourne St. George to follow the valley, the Roman road climbs steeply upwards, crosses the Poulton Downs and descends as Greenway Road into Mildenhall.
