The Clink

The Clink AMY S NO220135 1 362 130m

    The Clink 1900 x 1949 OS 6 inch 2nd revision [beside ‘Old Quarry’]

Perhaps a variant of Sc clint ‘crag, cliff, projecting rock’, which might refer to the old quarry nearby. On the other hand, as it appears so late in the record, it may be some kind of jocular reference to a prison.

    Both the quarry and the house are shown but not named on OS 6 inch 1st edn.

This place-name appeared in printed volume 4
