Saxon Heath Road Names

Home » Newsroom » Saxon Heath Road Names

One of our residents recently wrote in using editor@tarvinonline.org to Tarvinonline to ask the simple question
Is there an available list of all the street names on the new Taylor Wimpey estate?

Taylor Wimpey

She pointed out that it would be very helpful to know this when yet another lorry/van driver drives into the village asking for a street name that is unfamiliar. At the moment for her, like almost every resident I expect, it is guesswork ( haven't a clue)

In her email she patted us on the back by writing " I am sure that Tarvinonline will know the answer if anyone does. " Well we are suckers for praise but we didn't know so we have found the answer from someone who did know — our Parish Clerk of course!

The Parish Council chose the names of the roads within the Saxon Heath development. Details are on the attached map.
They are:
Fairfax Avenue
Sandford Drive
Croxton Green
Gibson Close
Gerard Close

For good measure we can add that all the properties on the Old Copper Kettle site are within Millside Close apart from the few properties on the main road (Bye-Pass Road)

Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
