I don't know that much about this area but I have just discovered via a brief google search there seem to be two versions of the history of its name: One is that in 1226 it was called Brocleg, after the guy who owned the land, I think. The other is that Broc was the old name for badger and the place was called 'Broca's woodland clearing'. I like badgers and will take the secondary moniker of @badgerdan for the rest of day in their honour. I have no plans to break my leg, however. Before you ask.Nov 05, 2009 09:56 by rabbitdan
