South of present-day Jardine Crescent Shopping Precinct lies over 23 acres known today as "Limbrick Wood", but known in the past as 'Great North Waste' [1776 map] and 'North Waste' [1889 map above], 'waste' meaning land neither farmed nor managed as woodland. The fields below the wood were called 'Little' and 'Great, Broom Fields'. The wood is mixed deciduous and coniferous, more or less a level site, 122 feet above sea level.
The Medieval name for the area was 'Lingbok' - 'Linge' being Celtic - 'Llyn' meaning 'liquid/water' and 'cain' meaning 'clear', hence 'Limbrick' - 'The brook with clear water'. Nearby in Jobs Lane stood "Limbrick Farm", long since demolished - the wood likely got its name from that farm name.
There are many fine examples of 50 year-old Rowan planted for its berries, greedily consumed by game birds such as pheasants. Some of the Oak is a coppice origin, possibly used for bark tannin and charcoal.
