Colchester Borough Council has recently agreed to consult Colchester Civic Society about new street names in Colchester. One of the names to be accepted is Richard Nichols.
Richard Nichols Road – off William Harris Way, Colchester, will be part of the redevelopment on military land in the Berechurch area. Like William Harris, Richard Nichols was one of the Colchester Martyrs who died between 1555 and 1558. All the other roads nearby also commemorate the Martyrs.
