The
                              home of George Levine
Highfield Avenue
Most of the west side of Cucumber Lane was the home of Read's Nurseries, which also occupied part of what is now the Berryfields estate.
This was the home of George Levine, an art dealer and historian who wrote the first history of Brundall. Levine Close is named after him.
Highfield Avenue was reported to be "a very rutted, unmade, tree-lined road" until the mid-1960s. Its name reflects the steep slope and the fact that it ran between fields.
