Lower Crescent in Minster Lovell – was it once a crescent?

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

We have been looking at old maps so we can build our map of who lived where in the village. Both Upper Crescent and Lower Crescent come off the Burford Road. But Lower Crescent isn’t a crescent at all but a cul-de-sac road. Was it a crescent originally – maybe going through to Little Minster or looping back into the Burford Road? If not, why did it gets that name? All help appreciated.
