Back Lane, Hoton

John Finch Simpson JP and Edwyn Andrew Burnaby JP, at a Special Sessions held at the house of Charles James Packe at Prestwold on 21st August 1822 'having on a view found a certain Highway or lane called Back Lane, between a pool of water contiguous to a farmyard and the public road, running from Hoton to Wymeswold for a length of 226 yards is useless and unnecessary, hereby order the said useless and unnecessary highway or lane of 226 yards and breadth 20 feet upon a medium be stopped up'.

A notice dated 5th September 1822 was put on the church door and at the end of the lane.

We are indebted to the late Pat White of Loughborough for the above contribution. Pat added that she believed the tenant of the farm was named Linaker.
