Coxford is a north western suburb of Southampton almost entirely devoted to a modern council estate development. Presumably the ford is indicated by the crossing of Tanner’s Brook by Coxford Road. The name was formerly applied also to what is now the west stretch of Coxford Road, from Maybush to Coxford proper.
Coxford Lane runs from from Coxford Road northwards past the Sports Centre to Chilworth and beyond. It has the appearance of an ancient trackway, continuing via Coxford road to Coxford and then west to the Test river.
