Built by the Romans
Fosse Way is an ancient road
Stratton straddles it
Just for good measure: Fosse Way ran almost straight (the shortest distance between two points) from Lincoln in Lincolnshire Lindum Colonia to Exeter in Devon Isca Dummoniorum
For further good measure: A Colonia was a city (one of four only in Britain) where retired legionares could remain if they wished, instead of returning to their homeland.
