Anyone seen a Rolling English Drunkard ... ...
I was visiting Woolmer Green and on passing under the railway line I could see Wych Elm Lane climbing the hill and I was immediately reminded of G. K. Chesterton's poem:

Before the Roman came to Rye or out to Severn strode,
The rolling English drunkard made the rolling English road.
A reeling road, a rolling road, that rambles round the shire,
And after him the parson ran, the sexton and the squire;
A merry road, a mazy road, and such as we did tread
The night we went to Birmingham by way of Beachy Head.
