History of Mere Way

Mere Way was part of Akeman Street.

Cyril Fox in Archaeology of the Cambridge Area (1923) refers to traces of a rectangular earthwork, one side of which borders the Mereway in Chesterton parish, are manifest in the pasture fields by the farmstead known as King’s Hedges. Roman coins have been found in it.
