Buckinghamshire Lace is a very fine pillow lace, and the making of it provided an income for local women until the First World War, especially here in Buckingham. Lace making is part of the Town’s industrial heritage.
A typical Buckinghamshire Lace motif is the ‘cucumber’, a short fat oval with a line of holes (to represent seeds) inside; the Mayor’s jabot, a decorative collar, has a strip of cucumber pattern lace. Very complex patterns might need as many as a hundred bead-weighted bobbins and these were often carved and decorated.
Town Councillors chose a mixture of names for the streets on Lace Hill– some tools, like Pillow, Bobbin, Linen, Silk, and some stitches, like Mayflower, Butterfly, Constance and Rosemary.
As for the name for the estate: Lace Hill is just for ease of reference. This does not need to form part of the postal address. The Town Council is grateful for the expert help of Kay Bradley, Kay Meadows and Helene Hill in compiling the list of possible street names.
Buckingham’s new parent, baby and toddler group started on Monday 30th January 2017. All parents/carers with their children (0 to 3 years of age) are welcome!
