Watling Street
Roman road which ran from Dover in Kent via London and St Albans to Wroxeter in Shropshire. It was called by the Anglo-Saxons ‘Waiclinga strat’ or ‘Wstlinga street’ in the late 9th , that is 'Roman road of the Wzclingas  - the family or the followers of a man called Wacol. The same folk name appears in ‘Waciingaceoster’ c.900, that is 'Roman fort of the Wceclingos', an early name for St Albans. Thus the name 'Watling Street' was first applied to the road between St Albans and London. 

Vicarage Close
Development from the 1970s. The former vicarage was demolished in the late 1960s
