‘Tilled grounds now pasture, open grasslands’. The NGR above is for OS Pathf. Leys Farm, but in 1855 Lays was to the west of this at NO577076, which lies very close to OS Pathf. Thirdpart Holdings No. 6. Modern Leys Farm must lie on the lands of *Easter Leys (Estreleyes), which appear in 1235 on the boundary of KRY and CRA (see KRY Introduction, Caiplie Charter of 1235).
