New Church Street

PLACES > Streets
New Church Street has also been known as Cuckolds Napp, The Nap, and The Knapp.  An advert in 1867 was for New Church Street otherwise Cuckold's Knap.  The current name will have come into play on the building of St Saviour's church.  The earliest OS map called the area near to the school building The Knapp.

Notable buildings:
Silk Mill nearby c1875-1887.
Dolphins Hall
Fire Station

ref. D 566/T/2/22
piece of waste ground with stable to be converted into a dwelling house, at Cuckolds Nap, adjoining Barley Croft [plan; small scale on deed].

An advert for property sales refers to both New Church Street and Cuckold's Nap properties showing that the names were both used, probably for different sections. [Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard - Saturday 18 July 1868 p.1]
