Cambridge Heath Road, E1

Place Name

It has nothing to do with the city of Cambridge as the original AD1275 spelling shows Camprichtheheth which is thought to be from the personal name of a former Anglo Saxon landholder named Cantbeorht, and hæth, meaning heath. By the 16thCentury the name had been corrupted in records to its present name.
