Agricultural heritage. This was laid out over land that had previously been Perrymans Farm. It was bought by the Birkbeck Building Society in the 1870s and a small estate was developed soon afterwards amid the rural setting. The name of the farm is thought to have come from a former occupant who had a pear orchard here, from the Old English word pyrige and Middle English word perie meaning pear tree.
