Slade Green Road, DA8

Place Name

Directional. The name was first recorded in 1561. There are two possible sources for the name, the first is that it may be from the Norse for the word slad which means a place for beaching or launching boats, but much more likely it comes from the Saxon word, slade meaning low-lying ground, so a green low-lying meadow.
