The route followed by the road is that of a prehistoric ridgeway between the valleys of the rivers Cherwell and Evenlode. The Romans adopted the route and paved it from north of Oxford as far as Akeman Street at Sturdy's Castle.

The route remained in use through the medieval period, being described by John Ogilby in 1675 as the primary way between Oxford and Banbury. In the 18th century the route was turnpiked.
