Padwell Green was the stretch of land between the Avenue and the Inner Avenue at the south end. It formerly lay adjacent to the south end of Padwell Farm, from which it takes its name. A feature until the 19th century was the tree-shaded Padwell Pond. Its remains were known in Victorian times as Cross Pond, presumably named after Padwell Cross which also stood on the green. The pond was filled in when the Ransom drinking fountain was erected here in 1865. Asylum Green is an alternative name for Padwell Green.
