Amberley

Gloucestershire

Watledge runs South from Pinfarthings towards Nailsworth.

Watledge bears one of those names which have passed through many changes of fortune and seen better days. It seems to have begun as Heardanleah, a boundary post mentioned in Ethelbald's Woodchester grant. This means the Warders clearing, or the Warders field, and approximately 500 years later had become Wadden. Later still it was Wadden Edge. Then, in the early 19th century, it was Wadedge and later Watledge with the T creeping in during the last 100 years.
