The Portsmouth/London road linked the capital to the nation’s greatest fortress. As a result, many of the great events of our history were connected with this important route. The road’s history, the practicalities of early travel and dangers encountered by travellers are considered as British history unfolds along what we now regard as just a busy but familiar road.
