The A24 is the main road through Tooting today. 2000 years ago, the route was laid out by the Roman invaders from Londinium to Noviomagus Reginorum (present day Chichester). It was named Stane Street by the Anglo-Saxons (Stone Street) and it’s route can still be traced from London to the Sussex Coast. Come and hear Robert Entwhistle (Author “Britannia Surveyed”) at our July monthly meeting.
