Burnt Ash Lane, BR1

Place Name

Up until the 18th Century this area was mainly woodland. When it was deforested, the timber was burned to make charcoal, hence the name Burnt Ash. In turn this gave the name to the farm, which covered much of the present Grove Park area, when the only inhabitants were farm labourers and their families.
