Bounstead Brook
Bounstead Brook
This is a picture of Roman River taken from Bounstead Bridge looking upstream. Up until the mid-1960s this was a popular picnic spot, known to all as Bounstead Brook. On hot summer days families would come for miles around to paddle in the river, try to catch sticklebacks and play around a small wood and metal weir. When the current concrete weir was constructed the river became too deep and dangerous for small children so the popularity of the spot waned. An overgrown meadow due to lack of grazing and health warnings from the council (on the sign) mean that those happy times are simply memories never to be repeated.
