The Great North Road

by H.R.Gillespie

The Great North Road is an unpublished study of one of the oldest roads in Britian. Covering the period from pre-Roman times up to the present day, the book brings together a wealth of information, from many first hand sources.

It is hoped this site will attract a publisher.

The book is divided into two sections, the History of the Road, and the History of the route. The "Book Contents" link above presents the chapter titles, and the following two links contain an example of a chapter from each section.

If you are able to open Word documents and wish to print out the entire document, follow the final link, "Print pages". If you wish to contact the author, please email him at .
