Etymology[edit | edit source]
Prior to 1869, the road was not much more than a track above what is now the junction with Mount Pleasant Road when proposals were made to improve the route. This resulted in a number of court cases arising due to land-owners who held the adjoining lands refusing to sell portions of their land.
