SZ0696 : West Howe: Zamek Close

near to Kinson, Bournemouth, Great Britain

West Howe: Zamek Close
West Howe: Zamek Close
This curiously named street is typical of the vast West Howe council housing estate - indeed, probably typical of many large council estates across the country.

Dozens of West Howe roads are named after people, being recognisable surnames - Moore Avenue, Maclean Road, Draper Road, Cunningham Crescent, Verney Road. Only one, though, hints at the fact that they are named after First World War personnel - that being Pilot Hight Road which has the occupational prefix included.

I presume that Zamek is likewise a solider or pilot's surname.
