Filey street naming

Have your say

In reply to Michael Parker’s letter (April 24) concerning street names in Filey appearing to have a connection to places in South Yorkshire.

I contacted Scarborough Town council whose administration area covers Filey, they tell me that unfortunately no records detailing where the names were derived from exist so are unable to confirm the reason why these particular street names were allocated in the Town.

Sheffield City Council have a street naming department within the Town Hall were members of the public can usually find out where the names of particular streets in our area were derived.

If Mr Parker is still intrigued enough to discover the truth can I suggest he makes an appeal by contacting the letters page of the local Scarborough daily newspaper, who knows, maybe someone local or perhaps a resident who lives on one of the streets may have the answer to his query.
