Salt Way, Hampshire

Historical Description

Salt Way, an ancient Roman road from the coast of Hants northward through Worcestershire and Warwickshire to some point on the N coast. It is distinctly traceable in parts of its course to Old Droitwich, and is called up to that point Lower Salt Way, but it is either faintly traceable or quite obliterated and only conjectural to the N of Old Droitwich, and is thence called Upper Salt Way. It went from Porchester through Southampton and Winchester to Colne St Aldwin, crossed Akeman Street there, went on to Northleach, crossed the Fosse Way there, proceeded by Hawling, Sudeley, and Evesham to Old Droitwich, and is presumed to have gone thence by Birmingham, Stretton, Charnwood Forest, Sedgehill, Warmby, Saltby, Saltersford, Paunston, Stainsfield, and other places, to the coast.
