why is the road 5 wents called so ?
David Replied on Mon, Apr 20, 2020 at 7:19pm
Hi Jean

Old maps of the 1880's show a farm and a building called Five Wents (sometimes Fiveways) House.

It is near an intersection of Five Lanes. Five Wents means a place where five ways meet.

It has been known as 'Five Wents' as far back as 1862 when newspapers reported the death of a famouse Five Wents resident. A 13 year old Girl called Phillis Beanham. She had become somewhat of a medical curiosity because of her 20 stone weight and was dubbed 'The Fat Girl'.

The unfortunate individual received hundreds of visitors during her short life. Her parents had refused several lucrative offers for her to appear as a sideshow exhibit.
