Church Lane / Church End
History of Church Lane, Comberton
Church End and Church Lane appear to be interchangeable in the 1911 census although Church End is preferred. On the 1901 OS map Church Lane is truncated and there are probably more dwellings in the part now known as Church Close than in Church Lane.
