    It was part of New Greens Farm until the estate was built on it in the early 1950s. Parallel to it is Carnegie Road, named after Andrew Carnegie, who gave a grant for the City Library, enabling it to open in 1911. Therefore, I reckon that Partridge Road was named after the Partridge family, especially as Daniel was mayor.

    Other roads on the estate are also named after well known locals - Toulmin Drive after Henry Joseph Toulmin who was mayor at one time; Maple Avenue after John Blundell Maple, who bought up the Childwickbury Estate, which abuts the New Greens estate; Woollam Crescent after Charles Woollams who was also mayor back in the day.

    Get my drift? ;)
