Lyndenlea is name of the house in Mangotsfield in which I live. Translated from its "Olde English" origins, it means Lime Tree Meadow. I don't know why the house was given this name - there were certainly fields all around until the mid-1990s, and of course more before the house was built in 1954, but whether there was ever a lime tree nearby I couldn't say. Perhaps someone just liked the name.

There are a number of different websites here at Lyndenlea, each one more interesting than the last, and they are all accessible via the Other Lyndenlea websites drop-down menu near the top-right corner of each page. A brief introduction to each website can be found in the Site Index.

If this is your first visit to Lyndenlea you might like to spend a couple of minutes reading about The Websites. This section describes many of the features I have implemented to make your visit safer and more enjoyable, and includes details of the various technologies I used to create them.

You might also be interested to know that the name of Lyndenlea has been immortalised in verse, albeit very indirectly and with a slight variation on the spelling. Take a look at this short section to find out more about The Poem in question and the song that followed.
