WHAT’S in a street name?

The answer, according to developers on the site of the old Knowsley Road stadium, is the names of a string of past and present Saints legends.

New streets created as part of Cunningham Grange housing development will be Newlove Avenue, Wellens Walk, Sculthorpe Close, Coslett Drive and Cunningham Court.

Julie Harper, regional sales manager for developers Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “Following on from the fantastic reception the launch of Cunningham Grange received, we are very excited to now be able to reveal that the street names have been chosen in honour of more of St Helens rugby greats.

“St Helens is a first-rate team that the whole community is proud of, so it felt only appropriate to acknowledge this by naming our development’s streets after some of the team’s best-loved players.”

Building work at Cunningham Grange, which was named after Saints namesake Keiron, is coming along so well that house hunters will be able to view the development’s new show home next month.

Once completed, Cunningham Grange will consist of a range of two and three bedroom homes priced from £127,458 as well as a host of financial incentives designed to make moving more affordable.
