Traffic on the Old North Road


I am currently considering an answer to a query about Wadesmill and as a result have collected together some old news items about traffic along the Old North Road.
Read what happened when Hancock drove his 20 seated Automaton Stem Bus to Cambridge in 1839 or when the Marquis of Exeter's carriage was side-swiped by a waggon in 1841. Find out why Romaine's massive steam cultivator (picture above) was going to Royston.
