Foster, K. + Skinner, R., 01/2016, A30 to A303 Honiton to Devonshire Inn Improvement Scheme, Honiton, Devon (Report - Assessment). SDV359378.

DBA undertaken along a corridor associated with the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn. This study is intended to inform the development of options for improvements to the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn.

The A30 between Exeter and Honiton corresponds fairly closely to the course of a Roman road that linked Exeter with Moridunum near modern Axminster. At the far southern end of the Site the Roman road passes through Honiton before heading east on a more speculative course. It is possible that the road followed either Northcote Hill or an alternative route along tunnel lane (MDV45109). There is no evidence for a Roman road running up the Otter Valley however local anecdotal evidence indicates that Roman finds including coins have been found around Monkton suggesting that there was some Romano-British settlement in the area. There are currently no Romano-British settlement sites known around Monkton or anywhere else in the Site.

Roman road came down Church Hill, passed along the High Street and into the Exeter Road. Probably followed a British trackway through the Giseage, and near the site of the Turk's Head tavern branched off to Hembury Fort. The Axminster road then came under Springfield by Shipley Lane, from Copper Castle Gate, and Hale Lane to the Old Taunton Road near Holy Shute. Map object also based on this source.

The Roman road from Exeter to Honiton is implied in the word 'Street' in a charter of 1061. The charter describes the bounds of the Saxon estate of Ottery St Mary which also became the medieval manor and parish boundary.

Margary, I. D., 1967, Roman Roads in Britain, 115 (Monograph). SDV24025.

Roman road from Exeter to Charmouth (northern route). The road follows the A30 with only minor deviations and following a very straight course. There are small deviations to the east of Fenny Bridges and a slight turn southwards was made to ease the crossing of the River Tale. The alignment continued with short straights to Strete Raleigh in order to keep on the high ground. From Clyst Honiton to East Wonford there are several minor bends to avoid low wet ground and some steep hills. The road along Rockbeare Straight is much raised and is typical of a Roman alignment. To the west of Rockbeare Straight the modern road curves to the north. The remains of the old road are visible to the south as a terraced agger circa 7 metres wide. Beyond this the Roman road turns southwest to cross a stream in Clyst Honiton.

A30 - alignment on Roman road (Honiton to Exeter). Documentary evidence in the form of place names includes Anglo-Saxon charter of Ottery St Mary; also settlement of Strete (mentioned in the Domesday Book) which took its name from the road in the vicinity of Straightway Head. Additionally, several field names in Ottery St Mary parish adjacent to the A30 include 'Street' elements (e.g. Boostreet, Bathstreet, Barberstreet). These often imply a very substantial paved road of Roman origin. There is evidence for the existence of this paving surviving into the 18th century particularly in the vicinity of Fairmile. Recent excavations near Axminster on the Exeter/Dorchester road, have revealed the presence of Roman occupation extending over a wide area adjacent to the road. The existence of similar occupation sites adjoining the Honiton-Exeter road cannot, therefore, be ruled out. The most likely areas are around Patteson's Cross and east of Fenny Bridges.

Between Exeter and Honiton the Roman alignment appears to have been followed quite closely by the modern A30. To the east of Honiton a link to the Fosse Way at Axminster existed but although its course is uncertain it is followed for part of its route by the A35 (see MDV18476). For routes linking MDV1875 to MDV18476 see MDV38709 and MDV45109. A more direct link toward Ilchester has also been postulated but its course has never been properly plotted. It would however be roughly along the line of the A30/A303 to Ilminster (but see MDV46455).

Goodyear, R. I., 1990, Roman Road (Worksheet). SDV356709.

The Roman road carries parish boundaries along almost its entire length between Fairmile and Exeter. The only exception is at Whimple where the majority of the parish lies to the north of the road. The road route cuts the west side of the Anglo Saxon Ottery estate along its boundary with Strete. The road here (the B3180) is described as a herepath or 'army path' in the 11th century charter. It forms part of a long ridgeway stretching from the coast near Exmouth to the Blackdown Hills in the north. It is possibly Prehistoric in origin, as it appears to be cut by the Roman road. On the west side the boundary with Feniton is cut at SY10989877 at Castle Hill. This is described in the 12th century charter as lying between Heathfield Mere and the River Vine. Rose-Troup suggests that this area was common or waste land in the medieval period.

Visited in November 1997. Birdcage Lane: Roman road at SY06639644. During the watching brief of a road diversion to west of the main scheme and parallel to the present A30 a concentration of flint cobbling was noted. Three slot-trenches confirmed the presence of a 34 metre length of compact cobbled surface. The width could not be established as it was truncated by service trenches adjacent to the A30, and the surface continued beyond the south side of the stripped area. However, the surface rose by 0.10-15 metres to the north, and a second layer of smaller cobbles and pebbles could be seen in one location. The main surface consisted of 80 per cent pebbles and cobbles, 0.01-0.15 metres in size, with infrequent sandstone, in a matrix of greyish brown clayey silt. The centre of the road surface, the top of the camber, could be inferred to lie to the north. No artefacts were recovered, but the line of the Roman road can be seen on aerial photographs in fields immediately to the west between SY055960 and SY062963, which would seem to indicate the date of the surface uncovered. The area investigated was sealed below road make-up, but was not removed during the road diversion operations of July 1998.

Archaeological desk-based assessment for route of proposed gas main from Broadclyst to Clyst Honiton, part of which will follow verges along road from Station Road (SX99809457) to Sowton Lane (SX98209342). Extensive sites of prehistoric and Roman activity are located to the north of this, round area of Hayes Farm. Further prehistoric activity has been identified at the southern extreme of proposed route in the area of the junction with Sowton Lane. No recorded finds directly associated with the road along this route. Features associated with road, e.g. early surfaces, roadside ditches, may potentially survive.

Between Honiton and Exeter the old A30 is believed to follow the line of the Roman road from Dorchester to Exeter. Although very little of it has been archaeologically demonstrated, its general line is recognised from aerial photographs, field boundary alignments and antiquarian observations. The Roman road forded the river Otter near Fenny Bridge.

The line of the former Honiton Road probably reflects the overall alignment of a Roman road between Honiton and Exeter. A cobbled surface exposed at SY06639644 near Birdcage Lane was interpreted as the probable remains of the Roman road. Between SY05959620 and SY06189624, the route appears on aerial photographs. Two Roman sites have been recorded along the line of the road at Gittisham Forge at SY13459935 and at Pomeroy Wood at SY13259930.

There is no evidence for Roman activity within the development area, related to the known course of the Roman road to the south of the site. It is not thought any of its course passed through areas of proposed built development to the north of the A30. Geophysical survey failed to detect any east-west hard surfaces or ditches which would be expected. Nevertheless, it is possible that part of its course crosses to the south of the site in an area of planting and open space, and this area should be subject to some limited further investigation.

No evidence for the Roman road was observed during a watching brief on a public enhancement scheme in Fore Street, Heavitree. The two areas covered by the watching brief were on either side of Fore Street and it is possible that evidence for the Roman road may still lie below the modern road.

Cartographic evidence together with analysis of former field patterns suggests that the road between Hamlet to the east of Pomeroy Wood and Fenny Bridges lay beneath the old A30 which was to become the eastbound carriageway of the new A30. It would, therefore, have passed through the fort at Pomeroy Wood, just to north of centre.
