There are a couple of really good picture books tracing the old line(s) of the A1. Have they been mentioned? I've lost track (sorry, pun unintended).

The B5061 between Telford and Shrewsbury is what the A5 was before the built the new dual carriageway A5 and although still in use, it's a very quiet B road.
