Names, Geographical

  • Wishing to discredit any supposition that here there be Lugworms(!), I found "The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Place-names" by Eilert Ekwell (Oxford, Fourth Edition 1960) has this to say about the deriviation of this placename:-

    The name is derived from the base leuk- or louk- of Welsh llug 'light', Gk leukós 'white', and means 'bright stream' Lugwardine He [Lucvordine DB, Lugwurðin 1168 P]. 'WORÞIGN (OE enclosure, or yard about a house,open place in village or town) on the Lugg.'
