addlewell

 

Addlewell appears on Watt’s map of 1806 at a position today that would be roughly south of Park Street halfway between the Swan Theatre and Penn Hill.

It is not clear if Addlewell, as shown on this map, was a farm, a house, a locality, or possibly just a large field. It will be seen that at this time neither Park Street nor Penn Hill had been laid out, although the latter is shown as the tree-lined driveway to Penn House.

Addlewell Lane was presumably named because it led to Addlewell and not vice versa.
