The village of Wick formed around Wick Manor, established after the Norman Conquest of 1066. It has an ancient Roman Brick/clay making site, (this now lies under a road called ‘Potters Mead’, off Courtwick Road). Wick had an Art Deco era Steam Laundry built in the 1920s, it has now been demolished.

An Alleyway or Twitten that passes by the site of the former True Blue public house, is known locally as ‘Dark Alley’ due to the black clinker surface laid down along its route.
