Lammas Walk, E9

Place Name

Previously called Lammas Road, it may have changed because of confusion with Lammas Road in neighbouring E10. Long before development this and the surrounding area was 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.
