A2 Road

The A2 runs 72 miles from Borough TQ3279 : Great Dover St in London to Dover, through Kent, formerly known as the Dover Road or Great Dover Road. It follows roughly the course of the Roman Watling Street and historically it has always been an important road because it connects London with Canterbury and the port of Dover. In the 18th and 19th century it was turnpiked and given its present designation in the 1920s.
