Many of the older streets in the Somercotes area were of special significance in the village history. The list below is not complete:
The newer housing estates:
On the South Spire Estate off Birchwood Lane, several of the streets are named after mountaineers that took part in Chris Bonnington’s 1975 Everest Expedition.
The larger Minter’s estate off Sleetmoor Lane had its streets named after flowers such as, Rosier Crescent and Azalea Avenue. This estate is now in the Parish of Swanwick.
The small Oakes estate was built on the site of the Leabrooks Miners Welfare, construction beginning in 2018. Each street is named after the soldiers who were killed during the Second World War and whose names were commemorated on a plaque originally situated within the Leabrooks Miners Welfare. Each soldier was a member of the Welfare before the war. The plaque was removed from the Welfare after its closure and now resides in the Church of St. James at Riddings.
