Hawes Lane, BR4

Place Name

An ancient route running to Hawes Farm and other tenements, avoiding the main village of West Wickham and linking Addington Road to Red Lodge Road. Peter Leigh, a local historian, explains: “It takes its name from the Hawthorne trees. Originally the western end of Pickhurst Rise was Hawes Lane and there still is a bridge over the railway that carried the lane until it was diverted to serve an Edwardian development of houses before reaching Red Lodge Road beside the Railway Hotel.”
