Stand and Deliver! Highwaymen in Gloucestershire website

Highwaymen bask in the reputation of being loveable, gallant rogues but this talk traces the historical development of these villains, who often carried out terrible crimes. Looking at the ‘Golden Age of Highwaymen’ and their impact on folk literature, art and song, the talk leads to tales of some dashing highwaymen of Gloucestershire and, finally, the decline of the Gentleman of the Road.
