Agreed.

Easy to overlook the generosity of Goddards too, well before any of our time. Good philanthropic stuff and their lawyers were clearly no mugs either, or the County Ground would have become a Tesco many moons ago.

TBF there were two layers of control regarding the covenant the Lawyers were just doing what they were instructed to do.

I'll be honest, properly in the minority here but I had no idea who the Goddards were until I looked last night. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goddard_family

When you own the land you influence the name of the street!  Wink

Looking at the dates as we moved to the CG in 1896 I assume he is the Goddard we need to thank.
