The cul-de-sac, Private Way, turns off Margaretting Road a short distance from the crossroads at The Eagle, and provides access to a development of new homes extending down to the rear of the house called Badgers on The Common. For some time, the name has been confused with Private Road at the end of Bekeswell Lane. A survey of residents conducted by Jill Carter of Heseltines resulted in general approval for the road to be renamed Birches Walk. The appropriate authorities were consulted and in due course a sign carrying the new name was erected. The occupants of the four original bungalows, Kars, Airdenie, Rose Bay and Sheringham, built, some twenty-four years earlier, preferred to maintain their long standing address as Margaretting Road with the properties named on a board at the end of their access road.
