Rotten Row          The Glen. The field below is from the 1839 Tithe Map.


There are several alternative theories about the name ‘Rotten Row’ (of which there are over fifteen examples in England): 

     a)     a place where there was once a row of tumbledown cottages infested with rats (raton), and of medieval derivation

     b)     a corruption of rotteran (to muster), and therefore a place where the militia paraded

c)     Ratten Row meaning ‘roundabout way’

d)    Route du roi (thus, the king’s or royal road)

e)     rotten because of the soft material with which the road was covered
