Looking toward Screddington
A wide-verged straight road is often supposed to be a Roman road, and this is often true: look at SK9845 : The Hollow in Ancaster. Maybe this is why the ancient bridge in Northbeck was once called "The Roman Bridge".

But roads like this are not unknown in native Britain, without Roman influence, or dating merely from the era of the Enclosures: look at SK9026 : Grantham Road, north from Skillington which is an enclosure road.

This one nearly aligns with the bridge, but not quite: and the county archaeologist describes a causeway associated with the bridge buried in the fields and verge a little to the west and on a sightly different alignment. The Bridge, whatever its date, is Medieval, so lets call this an enclosure road, or perhaps the enclosure version of an older one.
