Today's High Street follows the line of a Roman road, along which centurions once marched behind their standard bearer, now remembered in the name of this Wetherspoon pub.
Although Stevenage is a new town, it has an ancient history. The Romans settled here, and so did the Saxons who gave their village a name meaning 'the strong oak'. In the 18th century, the present High Street was known as the Great North Road, and was a busy coaching route, making Stevenage famous as a coaching town. The first regular service to Stevenage was the Perseverance.
