It is suggested on a site on t’internet that there are several place names the mean “Goose Ford”, places where geese were driven in flocks. It would actually mean shallow for where even geese could be driven. There is also a Goss Moor in Cornwall which is believed to be from “cors” meaning a boggy or marshy place. So could be either. I was wondering which came first, Gosford Street “Vicus Gosseford” or Gosford Green. It also made me think of Radford, which is apparently a place next to a reed bed.

Hi Anne, The Goss Moor I remember it well, Anne. The A30 bisects it & the Newquay branch railway line travels through it. Love your posts, as always.

Argon. There was an easier way - a handful of corn, and they followed like the pied piper. We let the young bull out in the yard to drink, scattering the geese. The big, bold gander came at him hissing, and grabbed the curls on his forehead. The bull tossed his head, the gander was thrown over his head onto the cobblestones that broke his back. We ate goose meat for whole week.

The picture of the pump also answers Prof's questions about the exact location of the Luckman shop.

It's amazing how many of these excellent photos keep coming out. I've got some of that building but this is the 2nd best. The best being a Troughton with the original woodwork. Thumbs up
