In the 1911 census there are properties with the address Hawkes Drove, Littleport. The 1901 OS map shows Hawkins’s Drove running due east from the Littleport. There are then some cottages just to the north of this track. In modern times, whilst Hawkins’s Drove is still marked, the cottages seem to have gone. So this location as marked is a little speculative.
