How to spell Winnaway
So does that mean that The Winnaway is “wrong”? Well, no. Zoom in on a base level OS map, and you will see The Winnaway on the east side running in front of all the houses from the Reading Rd. And the track, on west side, running all the way to campus, is just Winaway. The houses are all in the same postcode and the post office address checker confirms that they are on The Winnaway.
Two houses further up, The Bield and Winaway Farm (OS map)/Winnaway Farm (Post Office) are on something called Winnaway Road, which might only exist in the postcode database.
