Cherry Orchard Road, BR2

Place Name

Originally called Plough Lane, at least until the First World War, this road led to the Plough Inn and the village smithy. On the other side of the lane was Plough Pond, with two ramps for horse-drawn traffic to enter and leave the water. The area was full of market-garden nurseries and fields, so the latter name used by 1944, would have been appropriate.
