A circa 120 mile long section of a north-south aligned Roman road which crosses a greensand ridge circa 20 km north of Chichester. The road has a central agger, or raised cambered trackway, up to circa 6.5 metres wide and 0.75 metres high. This has been partly disturbed by a modern track on its western side. The ground which flanks each side of the agger will contain features associated with the construction and use of the road, including quarry scoops, drainage channels and parallel boundary ditches. These have become infilled over the years but will survive in buried form. The road linked the two capitals of Chichester and Silchester, and most of the remainder of the route survives as a now levelled alignment which can be traced on aerial photographs. Scheduled.
