We asked Marshwood CLT members and other local residents to help us choose a name for our affordable houses. Several suggestions were given and the overwhelming feedback was that ‘Bramblehay‘ was the most favoured option.
So how did the name Bramblehay come about? Well one CLT member suggested Bramble Close due to the amount of brambles that grow in the field hedge. Then a CLT board member said how about Bramblehay as ‘Hay’ is an old word for an enclosure that is common in local farm names.
Hastoe Housing Association will now liaise with the local council and Royal Mail.
