Stoney Street

Borough, 20, Southwark Street (SE1) "Was probably the continuation of the Watling Street road. This is supposed to have been a Roman Trajectus, and the ferry from Londinium into the province of Cantium. Marks of the ancient causey have been discovered on the northern side; on this, the name evinces the origin. The Saxons always give the name of Street to the Roman roads; and here they gave it the addition of Stoin or Stoney from the pavement they found it composed of." (Pennant's London, p. 67)
