It has been said that the county of Gloucestershire once had a lot of creatures called Goblins living within its borders as there are plenty of name places that have the word 'Puck' included. The word "Puck" come from Old English and one meaning was 'goblin' (Depending on what area in the UK, pucks called also mean demon. nature sprite or mischievous spirit too)
Goblins were known to dwell in dark places, were rather mischievous and could be funny or downright nasty and dark in their nature. They are said to be smaller than humans, have ugly facial features and make very strange noises with their talking voices. People would fear a goblin's antics, not knowing whether they'd meet a mischievous one or a very nasty one!
For example, Puck Pit Lane in Winchcombe, was said to have goblins living in the pit, which was very close to a quarry. Lots of goblin named places are usually near to quarries as it was believed that goblins lived underground.
Here are a few puck name places in Gloucestershire-
Pucklechurch – a ‘goblin-haunted’ church
Puckrup, Tewkesbury, which means a ‘goblin-haunted farmstead’
Puckpool Farm- , Arlingham – a ‘goblin-haunted water’
Puckham Farm, Brockhampton – a ‘goblin-haunted meadow’.
