Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lexden is a suburb of Colchester, Essex, England. It was formerly a village, and has previously been called Lessendon, Lassendene and L xadyne. Lexden is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Lexden is approximately one mile west of central Colchester. It is home to a public house, the Crown; and St Leonard's Church. The Leonard in question is Saint Leonard of Noblac, the patron saint of prisoners. Lexden's original name, L xadyne, is Old English for "Leaxa's valley." It is referred to as the "Hundred of LASSENDENE" in the Domesday Book. It is now cut into two halves by a modern bypass, Spring Lane. Within the space of a few hundred yards there are two 400 year old watermills, a 100 year old iron bridge over the river Colne, two local nature reserves and several interesting walks.show more
