On the left is the "Give Way" line for A436 joining the A429; since the village is a popular destination for coach parties, a sign directs these vehicles to avoid the streets in the centre.
Fosse Way
A Roman Road that joined Exeter with Lincoln. It also passed through Leicester,Cirencester and Bath.
It was remarkably straight, and many modern roads follow its route. It had junctions with Watling Street and Ermine Street amongst others.
It was probably built before 180 AD.
