This cut through between Beckspool Road and Malmains Drive is named after Captain Belfield who lived at Malmains until 1900. He named the house after his first wife’s home.
A few years ago some new houses were built on land which was formerly the garden of Malmains with their entrance in Belfields Alley. The new residents objected to the name and asked South Gloucestershire Council to change it. They wanted to change the name completely but Winterbourne Parish Council managed to have the name Belfield retained and it is now called Belfields Lane.
