‘Meetings’, referring to the confluence of two rivers, the Ore and the Leven. OS Pathf. shows The Meetings as the area of land to the west of the confluence, but on all the nineteenth-century maps quoted above (The) Meetings is shown as a settlement to the north-east of that, on the north bank of the Leven at the above NGR. OS Pathf. shows this settlement as divided into two, West Meetings and East Meetings, with East Meetings on the site of the nineteenth century Meetings. West Meetings is shown but not named on OS Explorer (2001).
