Wikipedia notes ...
Stane Street is the modern name given to an important 90 kilometres (56 mi) long Roman road in England that linked London to the Roman town of Noviomagus Reginorum, orRegnentium, later renamed Chichester by the Saxons.[1][2]

Stane Street shows clearly the principles of planning that the Romans used. The overall alignment is based on an accurate line "sighted" from London Bridge to Chichester, with subtle local variations to allow for not only the nature of the intervening terrain (gentle slopes are used to climb the South Downs at Bignor) but also the underlying geology (the preferred line stays on chalk ground and avoids London clay as far as possible).
