Condition: GoodThe A1 was the first major road to run the entire length of England, linking the ‘two nations’ of North and South. Conceived as the central artery of the 1930’s trunk road system, the A1 travels from the bank of England, in the very centre of London, up through the industrial midlands, north east England and the east coast of Scotland, to finish in Princess Street, Edinburgh. The 400 mile route was the busiest road in the country, and quickly became known as the ‘Great North Road’, a title it aptly deserved until the late 1950’s, when it was usurped by the fast and efficient motorway system, which left the A1 in a state of atrophy, underused and decaying.
