Great North Road (Great Britain)
The Great North Road was the main highway between London and Scotland. It became a coaching route used by mail coaches travelling between London, York and Edinburgh. The modern A1 mainly parallels the route of the Great North Road. Coaching inns, many of which survive, were staging posts providing accommodation, stabling for horses and replacement mounts.[1] Nowadays virtually no surviving coaching inns can be seen while driving on the A1, because the modern route bypasses the towns in which the inns are found.Contents1 Route 2 Cultural references 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksRoute[edit]Southern end of St John Street, with Smithfield Market visible in the distance.
