Early-attested site in the Parish of Farcet

This was originally only the name of some meadow-land, and it is not likely that the second element in it is the common Danish by . From the map it would appear that the name is applied to an area rather than to a particular spot. It is situated just where the Nen makes a well-marked bend in its course and perhaps the second element is OE byge (cf. Beeston supra 108).What the first element is one cannot say.
