Lammas Avenue, CR4

Place Name

Long before its development this and the surrounding area was all agricultural land. This name preserves the old rite of Lammas, the first day of August, formerly observed as harvest festival, otherwise known as the loaf mass or bread feast. After the crop had been gathered the land was made available as pasture for the village cattle.
