Cheeseway. This placename is documented in the 14th century and relates to a lost medieval settlement just east of Honiton. The name probably refers to a gravel track or road from which the settlement probably took its name at a later date. The present Monkton Road (and its continuation, amalgamated with the A30) is 19th century or later in origin. The earlier route appears to have followed the line of the suggested Roman road (st10se/235), then continued north east through Middle Northcote to the A30 at the site of Northwood Farm (ST17900225). This may have been the road from which the name 'Cheeseway' originated. However, Cheeseway Ash (st10se/263) (which now applies to the crossroads at Hutgate Hill (ST18550085) but which formerly lay on Old Chard Road) may indicate that the road lay on the high ground.

Visit on 24/08/1992 by Simpson and Noble records that the line of the road in Monkton parish ran from Northwood Farm south to the track to Higher Northcote Farm and is visible as a hollow way.
