Wattling Street is a historic road in England which was used in the age of Antiquity and in the Middle Ages. It was first used by the Britons but later it was paved and used by the Romans when England was governed by the Roman Empire. The road started in Dover, crossed London and ended in Wroxeter. Today, the road between London and Dover is the A2 road and the road between London and Wroxeter is the A5 road. It is worth noting, however, that Wattling street was also used as a boundary, separating different areas in England.
