Approximate line of suggested Roman road. Eastern section originally suggested by R. R. Clarke (NCM), including part of 'The Weye called Strete' on 1581 map, though this diverges southwards. Extended westwards to South Pickenham (and perhaps further) by P. Wade-Martins (NAU) from old maps.
See full publication of this section, with less probable southern route in (S1).
