Roman Road, Cheltenham I-Glos
In 1850 the Cheltenham and Gloucester Freehold Land Society bought 15 acres in this area fronting the Gloucester Road for housing. Originally called the Libertus Estate, the object was to acquire for members enough freehold land to enable them to vote. After St Mark's Church was built the name fell from view and the only reminder now is the nearby Libertus Road. This road connects to the Garden Suburb in 1919 Cheltenham Town Council bought 115 acres from Mr H Unwin, owner of Arle Court, for housing where all the roads are named after poets. In 1985 Roman Road was the scene of a vicious murder and sadly to date the person or persons responsible have still not been caught. Information regarding the Libertus Estate and Garden Suburb from the website Archive LinkExternal link and thanks are due to them for this. Time taken 3.16 pm BST (British Summer Time).
