Places of local interest in and around Street, Somerset…
Its earliest known name of the settlement was Lantokay, meaning the sacred enclosure of Kea, a Celtic saint. In the Domesday Book it was recorded as Lega, a name still used throughout the country in the modern form, “Leigh”, such as the villages of Lower Leigh, Middle Leigh and Overleigh to the south of the village.
In the 12th century the Roman causeway from Glastonbury was renewed, giving Street its name from the Latin “strata” – a paved road.
