High Cross

High Cross is the name given to the crossroads of the Roman roads of Watling Street and Fosse Way in Leicestershire, England.[citation needed] It is located about a mile west of the village of Claybrooke Magna and was located in the hundred of Guthlaxton.[citation needed] It was the site of a Roman fort known as Venonis.[citation needed]

In 2008, this section of Watling Street is now a dual carriageway section of the A5, the southern part of the Fosse Way is a B road, and the northern route of the Fosse is now a track which forms a part of a long-distance path called the Leicestershire Round.[citation needed]
