The Crossing

One of Masterton's many streams flows through 'The Crossing'.

When a paved footpath was constructed between Cole Street and Essex Street in the 1930s it became unofficially known as “The Crossing”. It was not officially named until the 1970s when various names were suggested, Essex Way, Essex Glade, Birch Grove all having their advocates. It was eventually decided to call the pathway “The Crossing”.
