Burghley Lane – wicket gate

This narrow lane runs behind the eastern side of High Street St Martins along one edge of Burghley Park. A wicket gate there in the wall gives entry to the park.

This little gate leads from Burghley Lane and Park Lane into Burghley Park. Originally it was a short cut for Lady Anne Cecil, who had a house in High Street St Martins, to connect her to Burghley House.

In 1911 it was a handy approach for boys to the Burghley Park cricket pitch.

Close to the wicket gate on the western edge of Burghley Park is this row of terraced cottages, where the lane turns to the west, opening on to High Street, St Martins.
