The Ladypool Road trail is set for the last weekend of September and will be a trail through time meeting characters connected with the road.There is a rich and varied cast of people connected to the road and this promises to be a thoroughly entertaining walk. Among the charcters likely to appear will be Howard Raymond Davies (below) - a real "character" and motorcycle champion and WW1 prison camp escapee! He was born at 351 Ladypool Road.
