Missing Bits

Just zis Guy, you know? † Cyclist [A690572] :: At the 51st centile of ursine intelligence

An entry on St Albans which misses the essentials, I'm sorry to say. For example, the school (founded in 948 AD), the start of CAMRA (hurrah - and within spitting distance of the school), The Goat , the Abbey, last resting place of the former Bishop, Lord Runcie, the street-of-two-Bishops, Romeland, where the bishops of St Albans and Hertford have their being, the Roman road which goes form Dover to St Albans and St Albans to Holyhead, the near-perfect Roman hypocaust, the Eleanor cross which nobody knows about, the Moot Hall which once housed Parliament and is now W H Smith's, the late lamented Wedge's yacht chandlers, Bennet's motor factors, prop. Dave Bennet, and the fact that it's really pronounced "Snorbens".
