Nodehill, Newport



Nodehill was the old name for Upper St James Street, the name was changed by the Corporation's Paving Committee in 1861.

The origin of 'Nodehill' is believed to be a corruption of 'Noddies Hill', marking the place where the Frenchmen slaughtered in Deadmens Lane in 1377 were buried.

Despite the official name change, the area is still referred to as Node Hill.
