The name

The retail area takes its name from the road that runs from the northern edge of Bristol at Henbury to a point just beyond the M5 junction. This route is the former Roman road from central Bristol to the crossing point of the River Severn at Aust, now parts of the A4018 and B4055. The name of the road itself is often said to owe its name to Tom Cribb, a famous bare-knuckle boxer from nearby Henbury. However, a book on the street names of Bristol 1 states that this was proved wrong by the discovery of a map showing the current name dated to four years prior to his 1781 birth. The book's author goes on to speculate that the true origin of the name may be from Crybe's dwelling (Crybe being a personal name), or from crib - a manger or hovel.
