The old Roman road of Ermine Street runs nearby and many Roman artefacts have been found in the area including in 1747 the discovery of well-preserved mosaic pavements. William Fowler a local builder produced some highly-acclaimed prints of these pavements and some of his original work is held at North Lincolnshire Museum… read more history here.
