Burfield Avenue The name Burfield is derived from an area of land (feld) fenced for agriculture (bar). Most of the houses in Burfield Avenue were built in the 1930s before it was pathway between two small fields at the end of what is now William Street. In the 18th century many smallholdings were enclosed to create larger farms which brought an end the ancient system of arable farming in open fields. Under enclosure, land was fenced (enclosed) and deeded or entitled to one or more owners. The process of enclosure began to be a widespread feature of the English agricultural landscape during the 16th century. By the 19th century, unenclosed commons had become largely restricted to rough pasture in mountainous areas and to relatively small parts of the lowlands.
