The story of Britain's road development - graphically and beautifully illustrated on our maps - is also the story of its political, economic and social history. And the car, more than any other single factor, has shaped our landscape andchanged our maps. Busy, bustling, often creaking at the seams, most of us have a love-hate relationship with our roads.
Like it or not, our modern lifestyles depend on them - not only for getting there from A to B, but for the distribution ofalmost everything we buy. Yet once upon a time, the building of roads was seen as a glorious and heroic enterprise. Britain's motorways - 'the cathedrals of the modern world' - are the ultimate expression of our modern age.
From the old ways to the motorways, Mapping the Roads, charts the ambitions and hopes of the nation through our maps.
