Thanks for your kind words, but please be assured I'm only an enthusiastic amateur and other members are better historians than I'll ever be, and certainly better at presenting it.

Re the Romans (what good did they ever do us anyway ?....)
In case you haven't seen it, this whole site may be searched from the "Google"search box at lower L/H side of the main homepage.

Entering "Roman" gives many hits, this is perhaps most relevant as it details the Bicknor area you've come to know.

As kids a popular spot to visit and play in the summer was Blackpool Bridge & Brook, it's near what was said to be an exposed section of Roman road, altho opinions seem to vary as to whether it's really that old. These links will hopefully interest you.
