9780857203267: The A303

The A303 is more than a road - it is a story. 4500 years ago, the bluestones of Stonehenge were conveyed west from the river Avon along a small section of its route. Roman roads crossed it and drovers' paths lie beneath it. Tom Fort tells the story of one of Britain's most loved - and loathed - roads.
