Rant Score


Historically quoted sometimes as Rand Score, Rant Score today doubles up as a road for motor vehicles and a cycle path. However, it is relatively narrow at the top end leaving little spare space for the pedestrians as well.

The name of this score has, amongst other theories, been connected to a Christopher Rant who owned property there in the early 16oo's. A few famous names are connected with this score; in 1643 Oliver Cromwell captured some armory and some Royalist prisoners without a fight and later on in history, King George II used it after crossing the sea from Hannover. At the bottom of the score where it meets Whapload Road today is a popular ten pin bowling and entertainment centre.
