8 Flecks Lane
This bungalow is also known as 8 Shingay Road. The Land Registry prefers the name Shingay Road, although local practice favours Flecks Lane, hence the split personality. The history of this property is here on this page.
This modern bungalow is built on a plot of land that in the past was part of the Flex Lion plot next door, so past ownerships etc are the same as that property.
Enclosure Map 1816
An extract from the Enclosure Map is in the gallery below and various plots of land have been marked with the Tithe Map 1839 plot numbers in red. 8 Flex Lane is part of plot 325. At the time of Enclosure all the land in this part of North Brook End had already been enclosed much earlier, so is not described in the Enclosure Award. The Map shows field shapes and sizes. No buildings are shown in this area of Flecks Lane, although the Map primarily depicted land and not all buildings are necessarily shown.
