New Years Green
So called on Rocque's map 1754 and appearing as New Years Green on the Ordnance Survey map of 1822. Possibly a reference to festivities once held here on New Year's Day, but perhaps more likely to be from the surname of some local family - the area is referred to as ‘Newes’ in 1699, which suggests a manorial name.
Much of the area is a dump – recycling centre,  waste transfer station and breakers yard.
