SK5831 : Farmer Street, Bradmore

taken 10 years ago, near to Bradmore, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Farmer Street, Bradmore
Farmer Street, Bradmore
Looking towards the Turnpike, the main A608 from Nottingham to Loughborough.

This road into Bradmore was once called The Ramper, a name of uncertain origin. Ramper (or Rampart) is of uncertain origin as there is no evidence of any incline or earthworks nearby. Although this name is not recorded on any Ordnance Survey map, it is frequently used in old written records, the first instance in 1818 when Mr Goodachre of Blackcliffe Farm rented the verges for grazing cattle. There is an information board at the start of the street (under the tree on the right) describing the history of the street.
