Royston, a busy market town, lies in the north-east corner of the county, on the border with Cambridgeshire. Royston grew up at the intersection of two ancient thoroughfares: Ermine Street and Icknield Way. Ermine Street was constructed by the Romans but the prehistoric Icknield Way said to be 'the oldest road in Britain' was ancient even before the Romans invaded Britain. The town takes its name from the wayside cross erected by Lady Roysia in around 1066.
Hidden beneath the central junction of the town, at the junction of the two ancient routes, lies the man-made Royston Cave. Rediscovered by workmen in 1742, the cave has intriguing medieval carving depicting pagan images and several Christian saints. Legend suggests it was used for secret meetings of the Knights Templar in the 13th century. In the 17th century Royston was a favourite hunting base for King James I, who built a hunting lodge there.
Royston boasts some historic buildings and award-winning gardens for the visitor to see. The town's fascinating history is detailed at the Royston Museum. Wimpole Hall, the magnificent stately home, lies six miles from Royston (in Cambridgeshire).
