Longlevens, Gloucestershire

Longlevens is an area of Gloucester, United Kingdom. It was once (about 100 years ago) a small farmstead outside the city of Gloucester. The name is believed to be based on the old Roman name Colonia Glevensis. Another possibility is that it was named after a row of eleven houses with long gardens (Long-Elevens). One of the oldest roads is 'The Avenue' which is shown on old maps as a number of farm cottages.
