Dumb Womans Lane

Passed this Lane in Sussex and had to take photo!
Cannot imagine the Street Naming and Numbering Committee on the local Council would allow such a sign these days, but I would imagine this is an old lane, probably dating back to the middle ages, and the name arose from there being a dumb (that is speechless) woman who lived there.
