"the long straight road that led to Dalston, Shoreditch and the City"

This is now the A10, which in its entirety runs from London Bridge to Kings Lynn in Norfolk. It is known in parts as the Great Cambridge Road and the Old North Road, and partly follows the route of the old Roman road known as Ermine Street.

Within London, its route includes Tottenham High Road, Stamford Hill High Road, Stoke Newington High Street, Kingsland High Street, Shoreditch High Street and Bishopsgate.
