    • The name Crocker's Folly is no longer in use. This area was Cottages around the now Newstead Road area. http://www.weymouth-dorset.co.uk/streetweymr.html

      Westham began as an outlying part of the parish of Wyke Regis. By the 1840s, the area on this side of the backwater already had the Gasworks, founded in 1836, and a pottery with its own quay. The Melcombe Regis cemetery in Newstead Road was opened in 1856 with a lodge to house the keeper. In 1859 a wooden bridge across the backwater opened, thus making for easier access, more so for those who were to be buried. Abbotsbury Road is often found recorded as 'Cemetery Bridge Road'. The 1861 census records the 'road to the cemetery' which later became Newstead Road, and contained the Gas house, the Cemetery Lodge, Shale House Cottage (pottery) and Crockers Folly. The latter was a small group of cottages not far from the gasworks. Building was gradually increasing during this period and at a public meeting in 1882, the name West Ham was decided on for this new area, which before too long became Westham as we know it today.
