The Spain, Petersfield
The Spain, Petersfield
The origin of this unusual street name is uncertain. It may relate to Spanish merchants who traded here at the time when Petersfield was an important wool town, or it could be a corruption of 'spayne' meaning tile suggesting that the buildings here had roof tiles rather than thatch.
