Stane Street is a Roman road that connects St Albansmarker in Hertfordshiremarker to Colchestermarker in Essex in Roman Britain.

Route

Stane Street can be traced easily on an Ordnance Surveymarker map as much of it has been incorporated into modern-day roads, or still exists as paths, byways and tracks:
  • Beginning at St Albans, the road leads northeast on the B651. It passes to the south of Wheathampsteadmarker and heads towards Welwynmarker.
  • After Welwyn, the road passes though Oaklandsmarker, then turns east-northeast and goes through Watton-at-Stonemarker.
  • The A602marker briefly uses Stane Street as it heads east-northeast then northeast towards Standonmarker, passing just south of the village and over a ford of the River Ribmarker.
  • Stane Street then joins the A120 just east of Standon. From here on, the route of Stane Street has been used as the A120 (pre-bypasses of various towns) all the way to Colchester, namely:


The length of the route, from the centre of St Albans to the centre of Colchester, is approximately 57.0 miles (91.7 km).
