The history behind it: 

The Trafalgar Way is the name given to the historic route used to carry dispatches with the news of the Battle of Trafalgar overland from Falmouth to the Admiralty in London.

His journey was 271 miles, taking 37 hours and costing £46. There were 21 stops to change horses on the way from Falmouth to London. The route he took, which we will be taking is the main Falmouth to London coaching road.
