A Prehistoric trackway known as the Jurrassic Way. It runs through the area of Little Compton. The original route stretched from the Humber to the Mendips.
1 Reference is made to a Prehistoric trackway known as the Jurrassic Way that follows the southern County boundary between Warwickshire and Oxfordshire. The original route stretched from the Humber to the Mendips along the junction of the Lias and Oolite marking the Jurassic scarp. The trackway was a corridor for traffic rather than a single track.
3 Source 1 states that the trackway passed north of the Rollright Stones, south of Long Compton along the ridgeway that divides Warwickshire and Oxfordshire and therefore further to the north east than the current location suggests.
4 Continuity unlikely before Neolithic, use may have ran on into the medieval period.
