    "The reason for the historic anomaly, in case you're wondering, appears to be because this sense of the word 'road' was not coined until the late 16th Century, after nearly all the thoroughfares in the ancient City had already been named."

    True, it has streets but no roads There is a Farringdon Road which becomes Farringdon Street when it enters the city.
